three little pears

Three Little Pears; casein tempera on board; 6" x 8"
These pears were painted on Clayboard toned with Ivory Black casein which was allowed to cure for 2.5 weeks. 

It still feels like a struggle painting on this surface and I very much miss the watercolor board.  But I'm committed to seeing this exercise through.  There are 10 Clayboards due tomorrow - and two more ready to paint right now.  It would go much better, I'm sure, if my head was in a better place about making this switch.  I'm trying very hard not to think of how much I miss the watercolor board as I'm painting on this new surface.

On a more positive note, here's a photo of my grandson looking at the little paintings in the Great Green Room:
