Martha Kisling's Watercolor on Yupo Workshop

Watercolor on Yupo 11x17
My Fun With Flowers - Watercolor on Yupo Workshop was a wonderful, creative day where we all played, painted and experimented with watercolor on Yupo paper. Yupo is a synthetic paper with a slick surface that allows the colors to stay bright and true and gives the artist all sorts of opportunities for exploring.
We painted, spattered, stamped, stenciled, lifted, sprayed, dripped and sponged our way through three floral paintings. As you can see in the photo above, we also used alcohol - rubbing that is - to drop in to the wet paint for a great textured look!


  1. I've tried Yupo. I felt like a kid on ice skates for the first time but, enthused at the possibilities.

  2. Looks like fun. Carol R,
