Girl Reading

I have been "playing" with watercolour on yupo...Relaxing , experimenting and enjoying is probably a more accurate description. My reference is a photograph I took at a meeting...not at all a likeness of the woman nor the room...simply a starting point. Yupo is fun to use... watercolour doesn't sink in to the "plastic" surface and "mistakes' are easily removed. For this image, I used a foam roller,to blend colours, a window squee-gee for lines and to move some paint about, a waterspray and crumpled tissues for textures.
