As an oil painter for many years I hadn't painted in watercolor, so I began to paint local scenes and some portraits of friends and found the medium different than I had expected. I could go back into a watercolor once started or dry and I discovered more about the luminosity of this medium and learn patience as layers dried! Finally I attempted working on Yupo, which has a polypropylene finish. With trepidation, I tried it and came to love it quckly; applying the first brush load of wet paint onto the surface, and watching as it seems to take on a "life of it's own"!
More Yupo watercolors to come!
