AUTUMN

Painted over ten years ago, this little still life really should have been painted on YUPO. The colors would be so exciting and vibrant. There's even some Indian corn in the studio ready to be captured in a painting so maybe tomorrow morning's class will have to watch another demo.

Oh,yeah, I like this one but I have a feeling on yupo this would really be a winner!!! I liked the changes you made to the previous painting, too, but miss the pinkish glow in the foreground just a bit. But wow, what a change and how much better you made it - the eye of an artist is an amazing thing (to be able to go from that photo to that painting!).

Sandy....yes, do try this one on Yupo. Also, if you could prevail upon one of the students to take photos?! I would truly love to see some of your steps in creating this texture on Yupo. I started another Yupo painting yesterday and it reminded me of how exciting that stuff is! It has been months since I did a Yupo painting and I realized how much I had missed it.

Wonderful fall image, Sandy!

I'd love to see a picture progression of one of your yupo demos, too!

I have never tried Yupo...I am sure that seeing a demo by you would give more than enough incentive and confidence to try it :-)

If I can stop and remember to take pictures, I'll document the progress. The trouble is that YUPO is so captivating that I forget about everything else. I'll set a timer to go off every few minutes, maybe. Thanks for the encouragement, too.

Oh Sandy..please use the timer. And be sure to tell us if you are using watercolor or acrylics. Deb Ward kind of got me more interested in trying out some fluid acrylics (of which I have NO experience). I'd like to know more about how to handle them and how they respond differently than watercolor on yupo. Thanks again.

I see your paintings and think, "that is the way i wanted to paint when i first started!" It was not meant to be however, as i just paint different. So i come here to be inspired and see what you are up to. There is a "Creative Blogger Award" for you at my own blog. Drop by and pick it up!
Cheers!
