Abstract landscape

Acrylic on Aquarius II paper 

I wanted to try this synthetic paper. It is very light and it folds nicely, but I had some difficulty applying the pigment. I expected the drying time to be much longer because it is synthetic paper, but the paint disappeared" almost immediately. On the positive side, this paper takes a lot of beating. In the end it did curve though and I did not stretch it back. This is why the image is a bit off at the bottom. I have another big sheet that I might use for watercolor sketching...
