"Sharp Elbows" original painting by Kasey Wanford
"Sharp Elbows" is an original abstract painting by Kasey Wanford.
Mixed media on yupo paper (Acrylic inks, markers, paint, bits of palette paper). 9x12 inches, unframed.
Yupo paper is a synthetic substrate made of 100% polypropylene. It is non-absorbent, so water media paints like fluid acrylics spread on the surface in interesting ways before they dry. I enjoy working on yupo! Once the underlayer is dry, I use acrylic markers and heavier body acrylic paints to form a composition that responds to the pathways made by the fluid paints.
9x12 inches (22.86x30.48 cm). Painted in 2022.
