Yupo Hare Comparisons

More hare’s I know but I just had to paint one on my new Yupo paper! He’s quite the stark contrast to my cold pressed watercolour paintings. My hare on the Yupo paper is much simpler, less erratic and more considered.

But my cold pressed watercolour painting sketches I feel I have completely ruined. They were decent ink drawings but when I added watercolours and inks I found it difficult to visualise how I wanted the pieces to go which resulted in a confused mess — not a complete waste though as I feel like it makes excellent contrast to how confident I feel on Yupo paper, and how I was really struggling with traditional paper before.
