Hummingbird and Wild Flowers on Yupo

DS paints on Yupo. I masked the area for the bird, then I sprayed the sheet with water. I applied the gray background, smashing of pigment onto the Yupo as I've done the previous works. Then I used the side of the flat brush and painted in the leaves. Just before it was dry, I used the same brush and wiped out some lines in a few of the leaves. I let the piece dry completely before painting the flowers. Then I finely misted the flowers (using my hand as a shield to keep from getting water on the leaves. I pulled the mask off, which was hard to do on this because you can't really rub the painted area too hard. Truly, it would have been easier to just use a brush and clear water and wipe out the area for the bird. Then I painted the bird.

Your ability to explore and discover what all the paint will do for you on YUPO is certainly taking you on a great adventure. Nice job on this one and I like the last couple of landscapes a lot too. I love working on YUPO too. Enjoy!
