Iris on Yupo

"Iris On Yupo"
Image size 11" x 14"
This probably looks like one of my older paintings and it should.  I started this probably 8 years ago and never finished it.  I've been cleaning out my studio (again) and when I found this painting, I decided I needed to finish it.  I think this is the only painting that I have done on Yupo (a plastic, non-absorbent paper) because I find it to be a very hard surface to paint on.  The results can be interesting, but I have trouble with lint getting onto the surface and in the paint.  After I finished painting this, I spritzed it with a light mist of water which gave it an interesting texture.


  1. I think it is beautiful, Nancy. I have always loved Yupo work as there is a brilliance and clarity to the watercolors when laid on it that I do not find in typical papers. That said, I've never managed to get that beautiful jewel like look myself...

    1. It's so good to hear from you Sherry. I lost you in blogland. I hope you are doing some painting. It is such a good thing for our souls.

  2. It's beautiful. Glad you decided to finish it.

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    En ce moment les iris fleurissent et c'est un bonheur que d'admirer cette peinture...
    Vous avez eu raison de la terminer.

    Gros bisous 🌸
