Fluid Fun

Fluid 1 (Close-up) 
Artist: Linda Rothchild Ollis
Acrylic on Yupo

Expanding my painting vocabulary by
spraying fluid acrylics on yupo provided a new
path to explore! My experiences with yupo in the
past have been labor intensive and the results did
not provide this type of result.
This technique held my interest and enthusiasm.
Once the paint is sprayed on, the shapes continue
to change, even as sections of the painting dry.

My inspiration for spraying the paint came from
Mary Ann Beckwith, our most recent
Watercolor Society of Oregon juror.
Thank you, Mary Ann!
