365 Days of Art – Landscape on Yupo Paper

….day 8 of my year-long challenge

With this piece I tried to direct the thread to create a landscape. Tricky! I used acrylic inks again for the threading and watercolour to fill in the spaces. When you work on yupo paper you have little control over how the paint dries but then that’s one of the reasons why I like to work with it. This piece is also 9″ x 12″.

365 Days of Art – Day 7

….I’m a day behind because my new computer was uploading 23 000 photos from the cloud

I’ve continued with the theme ‘threading lightly’ from Carla Sonheim’s year-long class. For this abstract piece I used yupo paper and inks for threading. I love the acrylic inks because they are so vibrant. I filled the spaces with watercolour. The piece is 9″x 12″.

Sunday Trees – 321

….thanks to Becca Givens for hostingĀ Sunday Trees

It’s been way too cold to go out and take photographs outdoors so this is the best I could do this week. Happy New Year everyone!

p.s. I still haven’t taken my tree down and I’m a day late….sorry I’ve had computer issues (good ones)
