suggested a challenge to paint from a photo she posted of a woman in
the above pose. I had been wanting to try using Yupo as a painting
support and decided this was the opportunity. I loved painting on the
slick surface and it was fun to capture the many shades of white. I am
going to do more Yupo paintings. The trick is that it takes a long time
for the oil to dry and it is easy to smudge or scratch because it
slides around on the satiny surface. If you want to see some really
beautiful interpretations of the photo go here.
