Art on Clay Board

Just wanted to post a few comments on the painting "The Mist Breaks" that I added to my artid studio today. This work was done on clay coated board by Claybord; it is the one they market at "smooth" Claybord. It is resistant to absorption, but not as resistant as yupo surfaces. I tend to use a fairly wet brush in laying out areas of color and then dry brush technique as I get into details. Paint is fairly east to lift. Because the surface is clay, it is then possible to scratch in white details, such as I did in the grasses and around the lighthouse windows.
