Playing with Clayboard

Playing with the clayboard and starting to add watercolor washes to my pen/ink piece.

One of the things that I realized about clayboard is that, with watercolor, the paint dries really really fast. If you use too much water, it just sits on the board. If you use too little water, it dries fast on the board.

So, the next step is to lay down the basic wash for the clouds.

One of the weird things that I forgot about watercolor is that you can't move paint around like you do with oils. However, I'm liking the look of the watercolor and pen/ink on the clayboard. More practice will produce better results.
