Watery Sunset


I think I've finally come to the end of my long, narrow yupo paintings. It's time to move on to something new. But I have one more to post. It's 26"X5", so it looks small on the uploaded picture because of it's length. I like the way the sun puddled into the water on this one. Sometimes the sunsets do have the feeling that the sun is just dipping down into the water and you don't know if the sun will overcome the water or the water the sun; and then, it just disappears. Perhaps I should do one more painting with a "green flash".

  1. You have inspired me to try Yupo. The colors are very vibrant and alive. This is a particularly nice sunset. You can almost anticipate the sun disappearing over the horizon any moment.

  3. I like these long skinny horizons you've been doing! The colors do look very vibrant on the Yupo.

  4. This is so colorful, facinating and a lot more. So ok now I have to try it. I've worked on hot press paper and actually liked the way it layed on top, very different than working on CP. Thanks for the inspirations.

  5. Question: How do you "fix" the colors on Yupo. Once they are dry they can still be wiped off.
