Yupo weaving

Making the backgrounds is so much fun on yupo.  Watching the colors blend into each other
or manipulating the paint with witches cloth, cheese cloth or acrylic webbing just
fascinates me.
Then I have to decide what to do with the end product.  
Here I cut up the painting and wove it into itself.  Previously I had woven it
into strips of white paper.  Here I glued the strips together and then made a 
wonky spiral stencil to use with white paint on top.
I think if the colors were more earthen, the effect would be more primitive 
which is what I was after.  Oh well, maybe next week.
Happy PPF

It's Friday!

I think I will call this "super moon"

It is Friday and I almost missed "the party" again!
Work is definitely interfering with my play.
I am still playing, just haven't had time to share.
This is the result of a challenge from our painting instructor.
I used cheese cloth on yupo with watercolor.  
I find that the rattier the cheesecloth, the better the image.
This was a well used cloth.
Happy Paint Party Friday!
