The reference picture for this is the same one as the orange flower directly below this one, but my techniques and especially the paper on which it is painted were different. Yupo is a synthetic paper - which is extremely smooth. It is thick, however. Because of its smoothness, and the fact that it does not absorb the paint, the effect is entirely different.
This one has a very painterly feel, and in the way the paint pools and rests while it dries, it leans a bit toward abstraction. All in all, I like the effect!
