Watercolor and wax pastel on Ampersand Claybord TM

Romance With Nature

This was created with undiluted tubed (water)color and some wax pastel gestures on Ampersand Claybord (tempered hardboard with a coating of white kaolin clay, sanded to a silky smooth surface.) The dark is a deep green painted over red. While this is painted with watercolor, the way I have use them makes the final product a close relative of my oil works. Some of the surface texture is glassy smooth and some is matte and it has a lovely depth I have failed to capture in the photography. So, prepare to fall in love when you meet in person.

The outstanding thing about Claybord is its quality, the smooth cool absorbent kaolin clay surface, and there is no buckling from the watermedia.
