VIDEO: How to Paint with Watercolors on Yupo Synthetic Paper

This week’s video clip on EmptyEasel comes from watercolor painter Taylor Ikin, who is demonstrating how easy it is to modify and adjust watercolor pigment when painting on synthetic Yupo paper rather than traditional paper.

Yupo is technically made of plastic, which explains why it’s so easy to move paint around on its surface. Take a look at the video below:

NOTE: You can get Taylor Ikin’s full Yupo tutorial on DVD at Creative Catalyst.

In today's video clip, Martha Saudek discusses some of the elements that affect how water is illuminated by light, and shares a few of her methods for recreating naturally-sunlit water on canvas.
