Seascape on Yupo

This is my first attempt at painting on Yupo paper. I used Bienfang watercolor brush pens. The boat was M Graham gouache.
I was very pleased with the way the colors went on the paper. I could easily move the paint around without having to worry about it drying too fast. I haven't tried this with regular watercolors yet, but the brush pens was a surprise. I liked with they could do.

Yupo--I have heard of it and seen it for sale. You are the first person I know who has tried it--hehe! Your picture sure turned out well--beautiful sky and sea. I may have to try the samples one day. :)
