8"x10" acrylic on board

The weather is turning cold here and the leaves are rapidly falling off of the trees.  Winter will soon be here full on. I am already dreaming of summer. This painting was made on a plein aire panel ultra smooth blended polyflax cotton canvas. I have started working on another painting that is on a claybord, which is an ultra smooth clay surface. I am not liking it at all...I can't seem to maximize the transparent qualities of the acrylic paint and it requires many more layers to get the complex color changes that I am looking for.  Hopefully, I can show you the results in the next post....but I am learning that all boards are not the same.
