Recent experiment with classical themes in miniature. Watercolor and gouache with small additions of ink on synthetic (plastic) paper (Yupo). Invented Flemish Landscape - 5.5" x 3.25".
Roman Arch in Ruins - 5.5" x 2.75"- Watercolor and gouache with small additions of ink on Yupo paper. Yupo is very interesting to paint on, being that it almost doesn't work because it is so fragile. It is remarkable in how you can edit shapes by completely wiping them off with a wet brush and rag. But you have to be a surgeon to carefully glaze washes over the under painting. Like a high wire act, I relished this challenge in miniatura and hope to continue with more studies on such an elusive surface.
