If you feel it is time for a challenge and/or want to paint in a loose fashion, this might be the workshop for you! YUPO is a non-absorbent synthetic surface that has a mind of it’s own.
We will be working on two paintings – starting with painting an abstract with big shapes to better understand our surface and painting a landscape.
Paint with Watercolours and or Fluid Acrylics!
Photo references will be available for inspiration!
