Acrylic Paint on Ampersand Claybord

I have been playing with the Ampersand Claybord and really enjoy the surface. This time I covered the board in a red underpainting. When painting the green pears, I allowed just a bit of the red underpainting to show through. I am very pleased with the depth it added to the still life painting.

I have started using mostly boards for my small paintings. I love the smooth surface of the boards and they are so easy to slip into frames.
