Sunflower textures

I guess I played with texture more than I thought. Here
you can see some bubble wrap pushed into the wet washes
down in the olive green part, lower left. Experimenting is
something that can only help you figure out how things will
work for you. Different papers, surfaces, brushes, palette knives,
paints, different brands of paint etc..etc.. I have tried Yupo, but
couldn't quite grasp that...maybe it's time for a retry...sometime.

Wow, this one is totally gorgeous! What ever you did, you should keep doing it! Your use of negative painting is masterful. I never think to paint that way.

I found that Yupo really lends itself to the abstract watercolor. I just made my first attempt and was really pleased with the outcome. This watercolor has a lot of movement and the colors are very harmonious. Texture is good.
