Ampersand Gessoboard

Here’s my painting of begonias (different plant than yesterday!) using Ampersand’s Gessoboard. It dries much more slowly than the Clayboard, and oil paint behaves more like oil paint. I like it better, although the Clayboard has some unique properties. (The oil paint on Clayboard dries mat, and almost has a velvety look to it.) Both paintings were done on a dark green ground. They work quite nicely as a pair!
