I continue exploring a new surface for painting – Yupo.
As I said in one of my previous posts, Yupo is a pure synthetic “paper”, which has a plastic feel yet takes watercolor.
Yupo allows the paint to move freely. It is easy for the artist to pick up the paint if needed; or, even wipe it off completely (back to the white surface).
I think that this “paper” is good for some abstract art as it provides interesting unpredictable results at the end.
I called this abstract series “Path To The Unknown”. The first artwork was created with Opera Rose and Violet watercolors. It reminds me some kind of magic rock, a stone with veins and minerals.
The next one looks more like a landscape:
Rich bushy greens could represent hills, blue for the sky; and, a beige “river” looks like a path with purple-pink flowers…
And the last one has somewhat 3D feeling. After the wet-on-wet dried, I placed a few brown dots on it and rotated the paper. This way Miss Gravity painted some unexpected lines for me:
It is fun to explore unknown path and try to find new ways with watercolors.
