I tried something new today. It's called Yupo paper. New to me. Something I heard other artists in SBS talking about so I got some when I saw it in a shop on our last road trip. It's very slick and shiny. It says it's for watercolor. It's 100% Polypropylene. It took pen well too. It almost has a childs finger paint quality to it. I think it will take some time to adjust to moving the paint around with the brush, but it was fun and interesting to see the different results making, I think, for an interesting painting.
This is a Passion Flower done from a photo I took of it in my garden, something I grew many years ago now. It no longer returns although it did for a number of years. It's such an interesting flower with its 3 dimensional look and characteristics.
I am so impressed and happy to see so many flower drawing/paintings posted here already this morning the first day of our new theme! I must say we did a bang up job on Selfies & Others as well.
