Day 12 - 30 Paintings - 30 Days - January, 2016


I found this little experiment to be worthy of note.  I have frequently used Yupo - primarily with alcohol inks and watercolor.  However, I was curious to experiment with watercolor ground on Yupo. On the right-hand side below, I used watercolor ground over Yupo.  The effect of the ground can be seen as it creates a slightly rough surface that mutes the color.  

The advantage of using a ground is that it can turn any surface (i.e. glass, plastic, etc.) into a surface over which watercolor can be used.  I decided that in this case, I preferred the raw Yupo to the ground-covered surface.  See what you think...
