Tangerine Tea

Yupo has received a lot of attention in the blogs recently. Since I just added a piece, will also add some comments of my own. I like Yupo very much. I like the bright colors, the way it makes me work at getting the image I want, and the pleasant surprises it creates. Notice the very watery look in my background. The non-absorbent surface helped me get that. For the details I find I need a light touch and dry brush technique.

I thought the bright tangerine and lemons had a nice presence against the more muted pale depression glass plate and white tablecloth, silver teapot, and white teacup.

Good job on all of those details in the cup and teapot. You are right about the qualities of paint laying on the top of the Yupo surface.
