#39 - Watercolor poppy on Yupo
#39 of 200 artworks...decided to not say 200 days of painting because I have not posted everyday. Mainly because I get busy or should I say distracted on week-ends. I really do love Mondays, because I do my art like a business, working M-F during the day and some nights.
Anyhow, today's post is an experiment. I have heard of Yupo paper but have never played with it. It is popular for those who like to play with inks because of its slippery texture. Read a little more and a few people have had success with watercolor paints. So I had to try.
I LOVE the vibrancy of color that you get. The paint takes a little longer to dry so you can move the paper and watch the paint swirl. Then I added a little India ink to outline the poppy and just love how it bled into the orange.
Looks really nice in a frame and on my lime green wall. Which got me thinking of decorating that guest room with a touch of orange!
I hope you start your Monday off on a happy foot!
See you tomorrow ~ Judy
