This painting.. was the first watercolor on the Clayboard surface. it's an interesting mix of watercolor-like surface.. with the strength and integrity of a tougher foundation.
i don't know if i like it. the watercoloring felt a little flat.. and i couldn't get the pigment to move around the surface -- like on paper. there's an absorption quality to the board!
anyway, the smaller, simpler washes were fine.. and the prussian blue over glaze worked. it took the same amount of time to dry.. and working back into the various washes was simpler and more forgiving than paper.
on the plus side.. you can frame this without glass..if you treat the surface with a varnish. i guess this varnish is a spray fixative? [ like matte medium. ]
i will 'fix' it this week. that will be the final test to see if it looks like a watercolor~
