The Coke bottle was just a small part of the nostalgic decor at the alleys. It was inspiring to be part of the enthusiasm the sketchers brought to the day.
I'm still experimenting with the Yupo paper, which allows the watercolor to slip and flow on the page. It's also easy to lift the color off the page to create highlights. Are the small dots from the pigment, dust on the Yupo or fizz from the coke?
