Painting watercolor on Yupo paper

My first attempt of painting watercolor on Yupo Paper. I've used this plastic coated paper with acrylics, but it's very different with watercolor. I will play with it some more.

Painting watercolor on Yupo paper has turned out to be an adventure and a half. You have to pretty much capture everything on your first layer. You can go back, but water changes and takes up that first layer. While acrylic paint dries and can't be lifted, watercolor paint can....even if you don't want it to. So this is my second attempt at it.

This is another one I tried later.
