Wind and Rain

"Wind and Rain"
Image size 6.5" x 7.5"
I painted this on a piece of Tyvek.  That is the material that some envelopes are made of that is white with a plastic feel.  I tried painting watercolor over it once and didn't like it.  It isn't absorbent at all, which is fine when I use acrylic.  I don't like using watercolor on non-absorbent surfaces as much because it is hard to layer and add darks without the previous layers lifting.  If I didn't paint using layers, it would be fine.  This Tyvek has a wonderful textural quality with wrinkles and other textures.  I would definitely try it again.
