Why yikes? They look juicy.... maybe cooked in a nice gravy...

Yikes because I know that once started on challenges I won't be able to stop myself! Maybe that's a good thing.

Glad you have come across my blog and let me know about yours. Wonderful paintings and sketches. I particularly like the fluidity of this watercolour. Lovely.

Cathy,
It's so nice to hear from you.
The challenge was at rookiepainter.blogspot.com
This I did on yupo by just laying on alot of paint in the colors I wanted and let it dry. Then went back and played around till it looked right (at least sort of right)

Until now I was not a fan of watercolor and YUPO. You've changed my mine. You have created something uniquely luscious using both. It hints of Roberto Matta.

Your watercolours on Yuppo are just amazing!! I've used Yuppo before and I loved it. You've inspired me to get back to it. Really lovely work!
Happy Painting,
Nora
