Sunflower watercolor on Yupo 11x14"
One more Yupo experimentation. I used only watercolors, brush and misting with water (thats the summer special!) this time for this painting. Blotting with balled up paper towel I had on hand to remove excess water or paint also added some interesting textures and lines. The center of the flower was fun to create by dropping a color, misting and dropping another color and watch the textures happen . I was able to lift the color to show the sunlight streaking between the petals and the flower head. Next time I hope to come up with a composition that will lend itself even more to the mingling of colors and challenge myself to find ways to make textures :)
