I packed all my paintings and cards in this Pissaro Portfolio that I got ages ago. I never used before and it was the perfect case for what I needed.
I LOVE this watercolor bag! It's a Debbie Rankin Design and I've used the heck out of it for years. The bottom pocket is for your palette so it stays flat and everything else you need (and everything I'm packing here), always fits neatly inside. Great for every watercolor situation. I strongly recommend it!
The whole New York City experience went so well and WAS SO MUCH FUN! The crowd was so engaged and encouraging. They really were some of the nicest folks I've ever met!!
Jackie, the lady here in the hat, was my self-appointed, volunteer promoter. She spent the whole time giving out cards and samples and signing up people for a giveaway. She talked to everyone who passed by and encouraged people to stop and take a look at what I was doing. She came up with countless great slogans about working on Yupo. I wish I could remember some now.
This lady, Ingrid, used my little camera throughout the demos and took lots and lots of pictures!
Here's the second demo I did. There were lots of Ewws and Ahhs on this one too. (It was music to my ears).
The subject of the third painting I demonstrated was Fuschia flowers.
Here I talked about experimenting with values, composition, color mixing
and complimentary colors.
The final painting I demonstrated was the wet-in-wet background
on this Bird of Paradise.
Are you in the mood for something different?
Ready to experiment and take a risk?
Why not give Yupo paper a try?
Because the watercolor pigment can always be wiped back to clean paper, I think it's the most forgiving, the most exciting and the most stress free way to work in watercolor!
