If you love textures and gorgeous colors..... if you want to paint without fear of failure..... even if you can't draw and want to paint...... there's a workshop coming up this August that you just might want to check out.

At this workshop, you'll learn more about how to create your own great art on YUPO. I'll be teaching a two day workshop the last weekend of August, August 29 & 30, to be held near Cincinnati, Ohio, in my Indiana teaching studio and will include a vast array of painting possibilities for the slick YUPO surface.

The sky is the limit on what subject matter to paint --- abstract, experimental, realistic, landscapes, portraits, still lifes, wildlife....... anything goes, your choice! Mistakes can easily be fixed on this wonderful painting surface, and happy accidents make the journey even more exciting.

Both Transparent Watercolor and Fluid Acrylics may be used, with techniques being presented using both of these mediums. Cost will be $140 for the two full days of instruction.

For more information, please contact me at sandymaudlin@gmail.com . Class size will be limited, and a $50 down payment will hold your place in class, with the balance due on August first. Hope to see many of you at the workshop! It WILL be fun. Be sure to sign up SOON!

The YUPO painting here was created using Fluid Acrylics, applied like watercolor and demo-ed at the Middletown Arts Center Workshop in Ohio this past April. The second picture shows how it looked when the demo was done, before I went back to my studio to add more details to the painting. I'm still thinking about whether to crop it or not.

Wow! I've been missing out on a lot of informative posts. I'm going to have to take my time with your last couple of weeks. Wonderful to see your students' work - thanks for posting it. Love the Gondoler, too. This Grand Canal, except for the vivid colors, has a real 60's graphic feel. Love it. Good luck with the workshops. I hope they fill up right away.

Yep, in this photo it had a lot of that green we saw everywhere back in the 60's. In real life, the green's not so strong and the oranges are more burnt. It's hard to get pix on the blog to really look ike they should sometimes. Thanks for commenting.

Actually, I was commenting more on the compositional structure and lines rather than color. I sort of like the way that colors can appear a bit more vivid online but that's just me!
