Dogs, Rodents and Tulips, PPF
Playing with Paint
9x12 Watercolor on Yupo Paper, loose style, with lots of drippy wet paint. If you haven't tried painting on yupo, it will be an experience to loosen up and let the paint do the work. I like yupo when I feel like playing. It reminds me of fingerpaints. But be careful not to touch the paper because the oils from your hands will prevent the paint from sticking. You can see where I held the paper on the lower left side, my thumb print is there. But I usually leave things like that because somehow it feels like a happy accident.
ACEO sketch card, Field Mouse with Flower, a little 2.5 x 3.5 inch painting done in watercolor with a little bit of pen linerwork. He has a bid already. Just a little sketch card for the mouse collectors.
