Watercolour on Yupo 32cm x 39cm
Day 27 -I am running out of puff, my mind needs the rest and I need a recharge. I will be happy to see the end of January. I would love to finish the challenge with a "last" decent painting but to be honest I am not sure I can pull one off and may have to settle for my foodies. Well I have 3 more chances so what will be will be.
This has been a tremendous challenge to do as I think all the practice has provided me with so much opportunity to experiment, stretch my skills and I believe I have made improvement. The most beneficial outcome for me has been the need to be creative and push all the boundaries. Today it was in the form of "Yupo". It has been quite sometime since I painted on it and today I found it much easier than I had previously so my thought process and technique were more up to the challenge of this slippery surface.
This painting of Gum tree blossom is somewhat abstracty as this seems to be the outcome for me with Yupo.
