Discover how watercolour and Yupo work together to create loose and vibrant paintings.  We’ll explore reductive painting and see how pigments react to each other on this synthetic paper.  We’ll let the paint do the work and drop colour into wet washes, tipping our paper to create wonderful effects that will be the basis for landscape painting.

The workshop will be spent getting used to the paper and it’s unique qualities - we’ll do a series a small paintings (6" x 6”) exploring drawing techniques, washes, layering and how to create an exciting painting from a wet in wet background.  We’ll also practice lifting paint to create wonderful lights and textures.

Karen will also talk about Yupo paper, it’s unique qualities and how to finish your work properly.

SUPPLIES:  Please bring your own supplies & Yupo paper (suggest 11x14 pad) You can also purchase the Yupo paper required for the workshop from Karen for $5.00.
