i am new to acrylics, tho i've been painting in oils for a few years. i'm getting ready to move and don't have the space available to dry oils for my daily paintings for a week, so grabbed some acrylics from the local BigMart and am having fun exploring. this is painted into acrylic medium on yupo to give it some fluidity and staying power. 8.5x7" comment/crits welcome!

Is this on Yupo?

what you see is a fine interpretation, no right or wrong here.
thanks for the feedback.
hi carol, we cross posted, yes the support is yupo.
.....and am having fun exploring.
Great! Exploring is fun, isn't it?!
Looks like a hot spot to me...almost other worldly.
Welcome to the world of Acrylics!

I love the bold brush work! It reminds me a bit of Peggy Kroll's style which I love. And that fried egg in the sky made me want to go cook a couple. :lol:

ha ha, rockchuck, i thought fried egg, too! a little amusement never hurts ...
I really like the loose, spontaneous style. I love the red and the overall balance.
Excuse my ignorance but what is yupo?

hi randy, thanks for the comments. yupo is a "synthetic paper" (plastic). it does not buckle or warp like w/c paper when using fluid paint. i know dickblick.com carries it.
Thanks for the info Serra. This is something else I will have to add to my list of things to try (the list is getting long but that keeps it fun)
