Workshop: Fluid Painting with Watercolor on Yupo Paper

  • VisArts 155 Gibbs Street Rockville, MD, 20850 United States (map)

Exciting things happen when you go with the flow of watercolor on Yupo, a synthetic paper made of polypropylene. Because it is non-absorbent, Yupo allows for special effects one cannot achieve on more traditional papers, and as such requires a different technical approach. It lends itself well to fluid painting, vibrant compositions, abstraction, immediacy, and working intuitively, especially since the paint can be easily removed!

This workshop will focus on how to let watercolor, time, and gravity become partners in the creation of abstract paintings full of color. We will explore how different pigments behave, what makes for a good composition, and how to control what seems like chaos! No experience necessary.
