Prickly Pear on Yupo

This is another Yupo painting I just finished, a project for the watercolor Workshop for October. It didn't turn out exactly as I intended, but there are parts of this I like very much; mainly the intensely vibrant colors achieved on Yupo. I intend to keep developing skills with this "paper", it is fun to work with although quite a challenge. But, as they say, "fools rush in where angels fear to tread" so I will keep on keepin' on.

Thanks so much, Sandy! I know that what I have seen of your work is so admirable and Rhonda loves your style so that is enough for me! Thanks for looking and commenting, I do appreciate it. Yupo has its problems, but after having taken a workshop by Taylor Ikin this summer, I absolutely love working with it, challenges and all.
