Rooster on Yupo


Continuing with my study of roosters and watercolors, this was painted on a 4" x 6" Yupo paper which is a plastic support used with watercolors. This was my first experience with Yupo and found that the paint merges easily, and in some areas the paint will bead. The paint has to thoroughly dry before continuing to add other colors or the colors next to each other have a tendency to blend and merge, sometimes making mud. The same colors were used in this rooster as in the first one previously posted. See how the colors have merged making a nice dark.
