Giant Argentinian - WIP
As promised back in March or April, I wanted to paint this cactus that is so prevalent in our community. I decided it spoke to me in Yupo-ese and decided that was the ground I would use. After three sessions at the Art Club working on this, here is my first submission of a WIP. I have changed my mind of how to do this 3-4 times already, and there are probably that many indecisive moments to come with this one. But, that is the beauty of Yupo, one can change one's mind on a whim and re-do it. That is why this is the first WIP I have shown you after three, three-hours sessions working on it!
But, I am liking this iteration best of all, so maybe I am on the right track? At any rate, we are preparing for a month long trip back to Chama, so this might just have to marinate on my home easel until we get back. Since it is a full sheet size (Watercolor Paper sizes, any suggestions would be appreciated, although I realize it is early days yet. Stay tuned!
