My second try at working with Yupo paper involved a fall theme. I began by drawing a pleasing repetitive pattern using leaves from outside as models. I played with dropping in a variety of watercolors allowing them to mix on the plastic surface. As the paint dried I added leafy-type details.
The painting looked too plain so I went outside again and looked for another variety of leaves. Again I drew them overlapping and decided to paint them a soft bluish color. Later, I added the darker blue/lavender background. I think I may add more darks under some of the leaves to make them pop. But for now I’m going to leave the painting alone for a while.
Yupo paper is astonishing!
