This is today's experiment in painting on YUPO. I call it "Elephant's Lament" because it appears the elephant is expressing emotion. The background texture was created by laying textured rubber shelf lining on a wet-in-wet wash (indian red, burnt sienna and yellow ochre) on the YUPO paper to create the textures. I then layered a wet wash of turquoise on the top and tipped the paper to allow the blue paint to run down into the textured background. I then developed the elephant and detail from the patterns revealed in the patterns.
