Sunflowers and Yupo Fun

Watercolor on yupo - 11x17

Love, love, love working on yupo paper! It provides a slick surface for the paint to sit on, allowing for bright colors and a loose, painterly style. 
I used a light oil pastel to create line work on the yupo first. The oil pastel resists the watercolor paint which keeps the colors from running together and gives an added freshness to the piece.
Plastic wrap was placed on the background paint to create more fun texture.
