Our YUPO workshop concluded today and really should have been a three day affair. The Fluid Acrylics and other supplies shown here are all that's left in the studio now that everyone's packed up and gone home.

Eleven artists explored and experimented with various ways to create art on the slick YUPO surface. I took pictures yesterday of all of them working, but completely forgot today to ask to take photos of their paintings. RATS! You simply can't begin to imagine how creative and unique each masterpiece was.

Later this week, watch for some posts of the demos as well as several corrections made on my previously posted paintings. One of my childhood friends, Betsy, drove down from our hometown to help out. Thank goodness for her being here because my energy level isn't quite at the top yet... knee surgery 5 wks ago. THANK YOU, Betsy, for all your support. It was so good to be with you, and I so appreciated all your help.
We painted with transparent watercolor all day yesterday on the YUPO, then today we jumped out into the wild using Fluid Acrylics, charcoal, acrylic inks, as well as Caran d'Ache Crayons to embellish our YUPO work.
Texture was the name of the game, and the compositions were singing with glorious color.
Their work was very good, which was especially awesome considering that several of the workshoppers had never ever painted on YUPO before. It was a great weekend!

I am glad to hear that the workshop went well (not the least bit suprised). Wish I could have been there.

What great great fun for everyone. You have such a wonderful space to hold workshops at your own studio. What a pity we shan't be seeing your workshoppers results - but maybe some are bloggers and will post their work and thoughts on the weekend - hopefully with a link to your blog.
