I visited Point Reyes for a wonderful painting workshop one summer. I explored, took lots of photo reference, communed with ravens, walked on deserted beaches, and hiked a little around the Morgan Horse Ranch where the workshop was held. This small grove of coastal redwood trees grew together in a tight community, branches intertwined, roots sharing common space.
Yupo is not a comfortable surface to paint on. It is not paper, it is synthetic. The paint sits on the surface, and if you are not careful, your paint will get too wet and flood right away. But it has a luminous quality that bounces light back and the colors just glow!
