demonstrated painting on Yupo “paper”.
She likes to use an angled brush and QOR
(Golden) paints, a new line of watercolors
that offer color strength, range and versatility. Annie demonstrated painting wet-intowet, using Kleenex, brushes, credit cards,
items to move the paint. Paint can easily be
removed from the Yupo paper. When done,
fixative should be applied to the painting.
