Technique for Painting Watercolor on Aquaboard

Walking Grand Traverse

Attached is a small painting I just completed, “Walking Grand Traverse”, 8″ x 10″ image size, watercolor on aqua board. I have been experimenting with this new surface (aqua board by Ampersand) which enables you to paint your watercolor in the normal manner, then spray it with an archival finish so it does not require a mat or glass.  It gives your work an entire new look. The surface is a bit clay-feeling, absorbs watercolor well, and the best part is you can easily lift back to white. It is a bit tricky at first until you get the feel of it, but it is really fun!
