Painting on Black Clayboard

As you saw in the last post, I carved a design out of black clayboard and am now painting in the white spaces.  This time I am using Holbein acrylic gouache.  While it is a very nice product for other things, I am finding gouache a bit too opaque for my tastes in this application.  I think for the next one I may try Holbein's liquid airbrush acrylic paint.  Well, lets see how this works first.  Here is the painted version.

Next I will be etching out details over the painted parts. Here is the first pass:

I'm not loving this.  I think I prefer color on white clayboard to black.  I'll finish this tomorrow.
