Vasijas

Vasijas, watercolor on Yupo, 28x35 cm. "Yupo" is the brand-name of a support used to paint with watercolor. Contrary to the traditional watercolor paper, which absorbs water and pigment, Yupo does not absorb the water or the pigment. Therefore, the watercolor (water+pigment) "sits" on the Yupo for much longer before it dries by evaporation. When it dries, since it has not absorbed the pigment, the colors are brighter, giving the impression that acrylic colors have been used instead of watercolors. You can buy Yupo in any art store in California, USA. I have not found it in France.
"Yupo" es la marca de un papel base para pintar a la acuarela. Al contrario del papel de acuarela tradicional, que absorbe agua y pigmento, "Yupo" no absorbe el agua ni el pigmento. Por lo tanto la acuarela (agua+pigmento) demora mas tiempo en secarse por evaporacion. Cuando se seca, al no haber absorbido el pigmento, los colores son mas brillantes, dando la impresion de haber sido pintado con acrilicos. Puedes comprar "Yupo" en cualquier negocio de arte en California, USA. No lo he encontrado en Francia.
