F.A.A. members met on Tuesday, February 2, (Groundhog Day!) to see a demonstration by F.A.A. Vice-President Louise Jackson. Her demo involved the use of stencils, liquid watercolor paint to create artwork on Yupo paper. Louise, who has been painting since 1965, is the author of 23 painting books. She has taught in the U.S., Canada, Italy, Argentina, and Japan. She is a signature member of W.O.W.S., D.S.P.S., and is a Master Decorative Artist.
During her presentation, she discussed the advantages of using Yupo. It is an easy material on which to paint, and one of its qualities is that mistakes are easily corrected by wiping clean with Windex. She showed how she uses various stencils and liquid watercolor paint to create colorful paintings, which she seals with Krylon Crystal Clear sealant when the work is complete.
