Playing with Yupo #1

Untitled Abstract, Watercolor and Gouache on Yupo, 20"x26", NFS
I am just back from an extended trip to the southern states, one week of which was spent at the Kanuga Watermedia Workshops in Hendersonville, NC. I took a workshop with Mark Mehaffey which was amazing. I would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in learning to paint on Yupo, particularly if you are interested in experimenting with abstraction.

This is one of the paintings I made while at the workshop. We were experimenting with stamping and lifting watercolor paint and using gouache to add quiet and/or opaque passages to a painting. In this case, the result is very busy - basically everything you can put in is here.
