Ampersand Board – Clay Bord

Acrylic on Clay Bord 5 8 7 inches

<sigh> the Ampersand surfaces are all so smooth and slippery!</sigh>  The claybord is apparently an “ultra smooth absorbent clay ground”.  But the reason I think I find their surfaces slippery is that they don’t absorb that well and the paint just slides around out of your total control.

Anyway this iris didn’t turn out too bad.  The black background is ultramarine blue & burnt umber.
