It's Friday...

Where does time go?
I am back working four days a week and it has totally messed up my art time.
So, this week rather than working at our community art center, I decided to work on my lanai.
The weather is now in the 80's, so it was pleasant for playing.
I got my yupo ready, assembled the paints and poured away.
When I didn't get the results I liked, I tipped my board around trying to find something I liked.
Then I added a bit of water and tipped some more.
Finally I had it!

I left it to dry.
If you look carefully you will see that the paint drifts to the top left corner.
Yes, it drifts and it drifted right on to a yellow chair cushion below.
Well, all of those cushions needed washing anyway and "most' of it came out and nothing shows
when I turn the cushion over.



This is another background done over a watercolor background.


And here is my latest blooms.

Happy PPF

  7. Wow! Your pourings are gorgeous, Christine. I can't figure out how you got are the variations behind the darkers applications in that first one! It is in the 50's here today and cloudy! Thank you for commenting on my blog.

  18. Did you use alcohol ink for the paint? Apparently, they are supposed to do marvels on yupo. The colors are lovely so is the orchid.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for the lovely comment.

  21. You created vibrant colors in your piece. It is always inspiring to read about someones creative process, that everything doesn't always come out for others either but by adding some water and tipping the piece awesome art appears.
