Yupo Paper can be seen as a challenge to work with, because of the way the paint sits on top of the synthetic paper rather than soaking through. However I see it as a fantastic opportunity to create dramatic and unique wet on wet blending that is difficult to produce with regular watercolor paper. Yupo paper captures very organic color blending and raw paint overlays, which is why I love it! Check out some of my favorite yupo paper paintings, below.
