I am cringing while I post this. I have painted three horrible ATC’s. and one awful 8 x 10. And this yucky 5 x 7. Hahaha. I have two fairly cool 4 x 4 continuations. But I thought I posted enough of those. Might be putting you all to sleep. Hahaha. So I am saving those as back up. For days when All else fails.
I hated this last night when I was editing it for posting. I made some changes in Photoshop, using the smudge tool to soften some of the “messiness” in the field. I didn’t like that either, so I decided to post it as is.
It’s been a long time since I have worked on Yupo. This is on Legion Yupo Medium. First time I have tried it and I really like working with it. It is a good weight, and the great thing about Yupo is that it can handle a lot of water, and does not curl up. I did’t tape this down, and it remained flat.
For those of you new to my blog, Yupo is a recyclable, waterproof, tree-free Synthetic Paper. It feels like plastic. It allows for really wonderful effects with watercolors. Welcome, btw. So glad to have you following my artistic journey. 🙂
The tree on the left was a mistake. But I liked how it formed, and went with it, adding more on the right. I am not sure the distance is convincing. I think the field is much to busy and should be simplified towards the top of the hill. But I have to say. I like it a whole lot better this morning. Hahaha. And the great thing is, I can go back in and make changes. Erase the mistakes so to speak. Any suggestions? Haha 🙂
I liked it immediately…I thought, “oooh pretty.” I thought it was intentional. Then, I read your post. 😀 The smudges–just imagine that you worked this just after a rain that left things all muddy and wet.
There you go Chandra! 🙂 Haha, love that! xoxo
Theres nothing a big tree in the foreground wont fix. Learned that from Bob Ross.
Haha! Right?! I saw some of his show at my Aunts and Uncles. My Uncle loves watching him, and he is not an artist.
Hmm, I may have to give that a go Sea. ;o)
It certainly makes one think; what is over the hill? With Yupo change is so possible!
Ha ha, thanks Val. Great to know. 😉 Yup, I love that about Yupo. You can just wipe it off and start over. Haha. 🙂 Happy ATC’ing Val!
I like the fluidiness of this, it let’s your mind wander. Great quote to go with it. Cheers
Awesome Christine 🙂 So nice to hear. Happy creating my friend. 🙂
