I'm experimenting with a pad of Yupo paper that I bought from CJ's Art Supplies. First I painted this simple sketch on Yupo, and then I painted it on my regular watercolor paper. This is the Yupo version. I've learned that you can't erase very well on Yupo. I always use Pentel Clic erasers (the soft white kind). When I use it on Yupo, it leaves an area that resists paint. Yupo is great fun, but lots of frustration, too. I'm not yet sure if I love it or hate it.

Another of the mixed bouquet watercolors I painted a few weeks ago. I've been away from my watercolors since then, due to projects at work, but think I'll have time to paint again very soon. It's good to take a break sometimes. I'm very lucky to have that option.
