I wanted to contrast the natural and farmland permeable terrain with the developed impermeable lands of the Kent Valley. So I used laserprint transfers and acrylic paint for the latter, and watercolor for the former. Pervious and impervious are synonyms for permeable and impermeable, but have a secondary connotation hard-shelled, can't be swayed by appeals.
