These are great. Are they from life?

Re: Watercolor figures

I like these so much! I have always wondered what Yupo is like to work on.

Thanks everyone.

bethany t - People either love or hate yupo it seems. It is non absorbent, shiny, slick, and indestructible. It's a little like poster board but won't buckle when wet. Someone said if you want to try it something similar is the back side of one of those plastic 'For sale' signs you hand in your window. It's great with watercolor because it retains the hard edge rings of the washes. Plus its easy to wipe if off for corrections.

Thanks. No they are from photos. I just started painting plein air at a local beach so intend on adding some figures in those landscapes.

Re: Watercolor figures

Yupo seems to facilitate a bright and expressive result, which is what you have achieved here

I know some of the more progressive watercolourists use Yupo ... it is described as waterproof so I don't quite know how that works and I haven't been game to spend any money on it as it doesn't appear to be cheap!

Thanks. Yupo is very glossy and reflects a lot of light, so when paint is applied transparently, the light I believe hits the support then reflects back thru the paint film as if back lit. I got a whole roll of yupo so its less expensive to buy in bulk. I was told something comparable is one of those plastic for sale yard signs with white on the backside. It's probably pretty close. It is waterproof, so you have to let the water sit on the surface while it evaporates. What is nice is it leaves hard edge rings around the strokes since the pigments collect more at the edges. I love that look
