Ripples Believe It or Not 16" x 20" Watercolor on Ampersand Aquabord. This is in my abstracted from nature series. It is a partially submerged tree and the rippled reflection on the water. I liked the image but the colors were a little dull so I jazzed them up a tiny bit. It is also my first time using the aquabord.

Thanks Katie! Aquabord is a new(?) product from Ampersand. Some people refer to it as textured clayborad. Ampersand claims that if you seal your painting (with spray varnish) it does not need to be put under glass. Here's hoping!

And here is a better photo of the painting:
