The collection of watercolor artworks that Nadel submitted to the Wally Awards program aims to bring vibrancy and depth to a range of everyday subjects, including a grape still life, waterfall landscape, meeting of strangers, rooster, donkey, and more. Nadel works with a vivid and spontaneous color palette of bright reds, greens, blues, yellows and purples, as well as a darker range of grays, whites, black and browns, to bring the subject matter to life.
100% waterproof, YUPO® Synthetic Paper offers the artist unique drying properties that make it a perfect match for her artwork. “When painting on yupo, the watercolors are not lost in the paper; they float on top and playfully interact. In addition, when the colors dry on yupo, they are as vivid as they are when wet, which was important to bring my concepts to life” explains Nadel. “It is also easy to make changes to brush strokes on yupo, which gave me the artistic freedom to try new techniques and color combinations.”
