There is a feeling in Venice that's magical.  Such a beautiful and paintable place... especially if you wander the less traveled areas.  This painting is of the most visited spot, St. Mark's Square with the Doge's Palace, and the surface it's painted on is YUPO.  Both texture and color are just phenomenal on YUPO, and it seems like play when painting on this slick surface. 

YUPO is called Lana/Vanguard in Europe.  In August, I'll be teaching a ten day workshop, in Frayssinet, France, all about YUPO! 

There are numerous approaches to painting on this 'paper,' and it will be so much fun to explore all those possibilities while being wined and dined by Bill and Corinne at Le Vieux Couvent

Open to all artist who love to paint

A special technique I developed will be included in the instruction - Tape Batik on YUPO - along with many, many other special YUPO processes to help you create your own masterpieces.  Join us!  Click on Bill and Corinee's name above for all the info or contact Kristin at dancingsun404@yahoo.com for more info.  I can't wait.
