Most of my works are on a clay panel called aquabord. The surface is produced by Ampersand Art, which is an acid-free textured clay surface that absorbs watercolors like fine paper.
I like to work with a limited pallet of colors, keeping it to no more than 5 colors. Working from light to dark colors, I patiently apply many of the translucent watercolor pigments on a wet clay. All the whites in my painting are the absence of watercolor pigment.
The finished painting is sealed with coats of a spray UV and a layer or two of liquid varnish, protecting the painting and making the glass unnecessary when framed.
