NOT VERY SUCCESSFUL YUPO PRACTICE

Have been spending the past two days sorting my art room and getting works ready for delivery next Wednesday and Thursday to Kings Lynn and Alby, because I am going over to my girls tomorrow until Monday and bringing our eldest grand daughter back with me for a few days.



But prior to that I was playing with my last sheet of YUPO with acrylic inks and although some areas were successful in this waterfall scene, the whole painting did not work for me. Two close ups I think work individually:



floral area and waterfall reflections


When finished I just felt it was too bright and chocolate box so the following completed painting was washed away in the bath so that I could play again on this my last sheet. Will post the result of that playtime another day - very sombre in comparison about a derelict church interior!



By the way, for those in England, the London Art Supplier Jacksons have stopped stocking YUPO but have an alternative French version called Lana Vanguard. I've ordered a pack so I can continue to play with this technique without having to keep washing out what I did before!!!

Joan, I really like the close-up view of the waterfal: great reflections and colors!
I am looking forward to tomorrow's post.

Have a good trip!

You're absolutely right: that reflection area is just gorgeous, Joan!
I'm not sure that it's the color scheme as much as the composition; as you know, it's very difficult to paint a stream/river/moving water straight-on and make it interesting.
You've done better than most, my friend!

I like the close up on the left and agree that the reflections in the waterfall are brilliant.

It was beautiful - and you washed it off???? Oh dear!!!! You are way too hard on yourself! Have never heard of the Vanguard paper and am not a lover of Yupo, but always interested to learn of new products; thanks for sharing.
