I turned this underpainting around and around and soon saw the eye and nose of an animal. There are several animals that would have been good for this design but I haven't done a zebra in almost 10 years. The yupo surface combined with the Dr. Ph Martin Hydrus watercolors makes for interesting layering. They are staining and it is more difficult to lift back to the white (even with alcohol). I did have to be careful with using very little water when painting over the existing colors an then lifting back. I almost gave up a couple of times today but am happy now that it is done for today.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
