3 cherries

6x6", watercolor on Aquabord

i'm still trying to decide if i like this Aquabord thing…it's definitely different than watercolor paper (loose wet smoothly blended washes are near impossible as the paint soaks into the clay surface immediately), but the lifting capabilities are really great.  in reading about other artists' experiences with it, their complaints (and joys) seem to be similar, and i realize i need to work with it more to really find out how well we can get along!
