Impression of Roses and Irises with Watercolour on Yupo Paper using both positive and negative methods with Lorraine Best
Yupo Ultra is a unique alternative to traditional art papers. It is a synthetic paper, made of 100% polypropylene and is waterproof, stain resistant, and extremely strong and durable. It features a non-absorbent, ultra-smooth surface that resists tearing and buckling and remains perfectly flat, eliminating the need for soaking, stretching or taping. The non-absorbent surface allows watercolours and acrylics to sit right on top of the paper, providing beautiful, watery affects that are unachievable on any other paper. Pigments applied to the ultra white sheet retain their true clarity and brilliance making the colours more vibrant and brilliant than standard papers .Yupo synthetic paper can withstand multiple erasures and it can even be run under a tap to erase watercolours.
Week 1: Roses
Week 2: Irises
What to bring:
Your favourite watercolours and brushes, palette, etc
Watercolour pencils if you have them
A water spray bottle, a box of tissues
Bring your own Yupo paper or buy from the tutor on the day ($3 per sheet).
