My photo
When I paint, no matter what the subject matter is, I always strive to paint with loose, expressive brush strokes, using bold, vivid colors and a sense of humor. I work very spontaneously, mostly in mixed aqua media on paper because I like the way the paint flows and I like the transparency of the colors resulting in an organic piece. I constantly experiment with colors, techniques and subjects.

Under the Tuscan Sun

This piece is done on Yupo paper with very liquid watercolor.  It is very organic even though it takes a lot of planning in terms of what colors I want to use and how I think they might blend.  At a certain point, I start to put in textures.  Each piece is different.  Yupo paper is smooth and non porous so painting on it is a quite a different experience when compared to  regular watercolor paper.


  1. Hai Polly:) Wow, this is beautiful! Love the colors and the textures. I discovered Yupo a while ago and it's my favorite "paper" since then. Nice to see you are using it too:)
