More playing around with the Yupo paper today! I still find it challenging to work with, but I really like the results….and it’s teaching me to be a little more loose with my painting.
I chose to do today’s Dawn Nicole art and lettering prompt on Yupo paper, because why not? I lightly outlined my layout, but also used the version I had created in my sketchbook as a guide underneath the Yupo sheet. I started with the ornaments, layering color as some of the water evaporated and when I felt fairly confident that enough water had dried to prevent big bleeds, I loosely painted in the background with a much drier brush. Lastly, I spattered some paint and metallic gold dip pen ink and lettered over top with Tombow dual brush pens.
