I like painting action, Airedales and Welsh Terriers. Capturing their love of life brings joy to the watercolor paper. We can use a little more joy in this world! Here's my contribution.
This is a watercolor painting that is on yupo. Yupo is a challenging paper for watercolorists. The paint floats on top of the yupo and doesn't sink in as it does on regular watercolor paper. This means that the artist must work with the painting and not place it on the page. A stroke of paint can turn into something else with a breath. Yupo is challenging to work with but the great lost and found edges that it creates are exciting.
