Clay board explorations

Spring has sprung and things have been busy. I did find time in the last few months to attend a weekly drawing class with Cat Sivertsen at Two Rivers Gallery. In the final two weeks of class, we explored the uses of clay board, pouring colors on and scratching into the board. I have been hooked! I really enjoy the way the colors layer over one another -- it provides an incredible sense of depth to the picture.

Now I just need to experiment with making my own clay board. Found a recipe online and will dive into that next week. Hopefully it works, as it will make things much more economical!

Oh, yes, and I've been teaching a drawing class as well, in addition to going to school. Like I said -- busy! Only 4 more months of school!
