I wanted to try something different, so instead of a flower I drew two flowers. Da-da-dum! I think I've spent too much time in advertising, trying to make things look "the same, but different".
This is painted on 5" x 5" Aquabord, a clay-coated hardboard panel that accepts water media and allows colored areas to be lifted back to white easily. To achieve the whites in this piece, I used my X-acto knife to scrape away the color.
It's definitely different from painting on paper, but the results are very cool once you get the hang of it.
