One idea, two papers.

I was playing around again and I did these two loose small paintings with watercolor and pencil on two different papers. It was my first time to try Yupo, a synthetic paper that stays flat and doesn’t absorb the color.  Even though I used the same material, the paintings look very different &  not just because they are different trees/compositions.  What do you think?
