Today’s face: Kyle, inspired by Sktchy. Today is a difficult day. A friend of mine died by suicide a few weeks ago and it was her funeral this afternoon. This was a welcome distraction this morning. It’s another experiment on Yupo paper, this time with Ecoline liquid watercolor & brush pens. I love how uncontrollable Yupo paper is. Even when you think you’ve got it under control, it changes as it dries. So challenging.

Today’s face: Ida, inspired by Sktchy. I think this is the beginning of a love affair with Yupo paper. I bought some large (A4) sheets of Yupo paper to play with but thought I’d experiment on some tiny 2.5” x 4” sample sheets I received with an online art supply order a few months ago but haven’t tried yet. This is my first ever watercolour with Yupo paper -it’s tiny, just 2.5” x4” and I love this paper. Expect to see more of these.
