This workshop will introduce participants to a wide variety of ways to paint on Yupo, a synthetic paper. Saturday will introduce creative ways to use watercolor, inks, or acrylics on this unique surface concentrating on elements such as color blending, creating texture, and developing dramatic movement. Sunday will go more deeply into working with Yupo, especially concentrating on painting representationally and some of the technical adjustments an artist will need to make to control paint and water on the yupo surface.
