hi,
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!

.....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:
Nice job!

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)
