Learning watercolor landscapes. Wash questions

Hi These are on yupo. I had to redo half the background of the river scene since i tried to do a wash over a dried under painting and it obliterated the entire background. It sat overnight so i know it was dry before I attempted the wash. Is that more a problem with the Yupo? I've seen layered washes in watercolor magazines. The yupo is nice for scratching out and wiping down areas. Is there a fixative i could spray on between layers to be able to do layered washes on yupo? These two landscapes are loose (weak) copies of paintings appearing in The Art of Watercolour magazine: Tao Shihu's Evening and Ross Patterson;s Evening Creek. and

Yupo is notorious for not accepting glazes over previous washes. I sympathise. You could maybe apply a fixative before attempting to overpaint.

I agree with Doug -- Yupo does not accept washes. You can drop juicy color into dry paint but even then, the water will lift some of the original paint. I think if you sprayed on a fixative e.g. hair spray, you'd still have a lifting issue the minute you put brush to paper. By the way, I like both pieces -- very nice work controlling paint on this interesting surface.

I love both of these. I found Yuppo too frustrating to work with, preferring conventional wet in wet on watercolour paper. But I really admire an artist who can come up with paintings like your copies above.
