I worked on the YUPO painting a bit more and I think it looks better.
I think the students in my class want to paint this on regular watercolor paper next. Then we might try out Tyvek, that interesting substrate that Myrna Wacknov uses all the time.
I did begin a drawing on tracing paper of the next acrylic ink + watercolor subject.
This time I'll go slower, be more careful with the drawing on the watercolor paper, and take more time applying the masking fluid. Different colors and a horizontal format for this one.
It's from a photo taken in Florida a few year's ago of hanging pitcher plants. More drawing will be done before I begin the tracing onto watercolor paper.
