Artist shows her unique style with watercolors


Photos provide of Judith Hummer's watercolors.

Watercolorist Judith Hummer loves to experiment.
So, when she discovered yupo paper, she figured she’d give it a try with the fast medium of watercolors.
To her delight, it opened a new chapter in her life as an artist.
Yupo paper is what she describes as “a correctible surface,” She said. “Yupo is great as it allows you to play and try new ideas but it also lets you wipe the whole thing away and try again. A lot of times we forget to play and just have fun with our art. This allows you to try something without any consequence — no paper is wasted.”
Yupo is a high gloss, synthetic, tree-free, recyclable material.
Her work and the paintings of 58 other members of the North East Watercolor Society. This year, Hummer is also the judge of the show.
Hummer’s intension during at recent demonstration of her methods was a lively session entitled "Let Your Creativity Flow with Watercolor on Yupo Paper" and was designed to “get the creative juices flowing and encourage people to experiment at home and try something new.”
The show continues through March 20.
Hummer has been the recipient of numerous awards from various international and
regional juried exhibitions.
In addition to her signature membership in the North East Watercolor Society, she holds signature status in the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society and Garden State Watercolor Society and is an elected member of New Jersey Watercolor Society. She currently teaches watercolor in Bridgewater, NJ.
