Koi Pond, watercolor on Yupo

Painting on Yupo is an interesting challenge:  you cannot layer, at least not very easily. However, it is great for getting a watery look.  I was inspired by the koi pond at my granddaughters' school. The image is 10"x14" and may be purchased for $280 through PayPal.  contact me: Arlene G. Woo

Made It! Watercolor by Arlene G. Woo

With my son and son-in-law both enjoying surfing, I am drawn to painting waves.  It took me a while to get them right, but I think I've done it "artistically".  Let me know what you think.  Painting on hot press is a LOT different from working on cold press -- not as forgiving.  But I love using the blues which surround our Oahu.  Image: 15"x22", available for $400 unmatted, unframed.  Let me hear from you, Arlene G. Woo

Flamingos! Original watercolor by Arlene G. Woo

Taking my little granddaughter to the zoo has inspired me to paint some of the residents.  But I tried an established watercolor technique of wetting the paper back and front to allow soft edges this time.It was fun for a change.  The image is on a half sheet (22"x15").  Email comments to me Arlene G.

Peacock on the Roof, original watercolor by Arlene G. Woo, Hawaii artist

A mother peacock and her offspring have been visiting my street for several months.  One morning I saw the male on my neighbot's roof.  I know many people do not like the noise of peacocks, but these two have never been a nuisance.  Of course they have not been on my roof. This image mats out to 10" by 14".    contact Arlene G. Woo
