Nice work, Linley.  Love the vibrant colors.

I have never tried a "mass upload" because I have never had enough mass to upload.

I use OPERA as a browser exclusively for Paintbasket and all my art-related stuff.  Fabulous browser - free and I have never seen advertising on it.

Oh Linley - mazel tov on being in this show!!! So proud of you - and the photos of you and your art are just precious!!! It takes a lot of courage for artists to put their paintings for view in the public eye - it can be so scary for me still to do that even after a lot of shows. Really glad you've shared this with us. And here's to more shows for you in 2018!
Cheers,
Sharon

Yupo behaves like plastic in some respects, but isn't totally slick. It is a special type of plastic developed for the illustration industry. Apparently the printing process couldn't pickup the intensity of colours properly on ordinary paper. Anyway, it's tricky because the surface does not absorb the water, so if you use too much it runs all over the place and makes muddy puddles as the colours combine. :o On the other hand it's really easy to mop up or wipe off mistakes. :) It just wipes clean. In theory, you can wipe it clean and reuse the same piece of yupo for a new painting several times over. In practice I find some staining colours like Alizarin Crimson and the Pthalos do leave faint shadows.It's available in little pads through most art shops, although probably not in Belize or Guatemala.People who paint with alcohol inks love it.

PS, Val. I have found it hard to remove indentations left by too heavily impressed pencil. Watercolour pencil, like Nolan advocates, smeared everywhere. So far a pencil with a very light touch and drawing directly on the Yuporather than transferring the image,  in not too much detail, seems to be the best option. Painting without first  drawing would be better, if you are confident enough.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Absolutely lovely work Linley and you can be so proud of yourself.  Congratulations and hoping to see many more exhibitions from you. The first is always the most difficult and the next will be easier I am sure. Anyway, great work.

 :thankyou: Patricia. I still have to post pictures of the matted and framed paintings, but it's a lot of work converting them all to suitable format, so I've been Only posting in dribs and drabs. I wouldn't bother to post everything but there are pieces in there I promised I would show when they were matted. I feel guilty about hogging the whole gallery when I put up multiple pictures, so I try to time it for when I think other people will be too busy to post their work... Like the lead-up to Christmas and New Year.
