Painting on Yupo
My husband, Rob Jenter, has a time-lapse camera and knows how to edit video. That let us make a demo video of me painting on Yupo, the synthetic paper I have used for most of my recent work. The photo below shows how Rob rigged up the camera to hover over my drawing table in the Sheffield studio. Rob edited the video, which is just a minute long, arranging it so you can see me work on each painting in sequence, That's not how I work, though. That day I alternately worked on these two paintings plus another couple, alternating to give the water and paint time to dry. And for me to step back and figure out what to do next.
I kept working on the two paintings after the camera stopped, in my usual look-glance-think-tweak way. You can see the final paintings at right.
