Rose on Lana Vanguard (Yupo)

I’m trying out Lana Vanguard Polypropylene paper, it’s made in France and similar to Yupo paper (which we can’t seem to get here).

It is smooth, smooth, smooth!  The paper is non-absorbent so colour sits on top of the paper and takes longer to dry than with other surfaces.  I thought this would make it great for blending but the paint just slides all over the place.

Having said that I like this painting of a rose (I started with an acrylic gouache black/white underpainting) and look forward to more experiments with Lana Vanguard paper.
