Practicing with Ink on White Clayboard

I felt the need to practice a bit more with inking clayboard.  Here's a small 6x6 inch board I painted last night.  This is a two movie painting.   Ink on clayboard takes so much time to paint, since you have to build up several light layers.  (Good thing I was enjoying myself watching "Troy."  I watched it twice, since there is so much delicious beefcake in it. Yum.)

 After the painting in ink (shown below) I added my symbol and a few leaves in black and then etched the whole thing.  Here's the result:

Here is the painted version I did before etching:
