Morris Mouse is feeling a little blue today. It’s just one of those days when a mouse feels like hiding alone under a bush in the garden and pulling leaves off of tiny flowers.
These Ampersand Aquabord hardboard panels are very nice to work on. I sanded this one a little this time with a very fine grained sand paper before I began working on it to get a smoother working surface. It worked out very well. I will go ahead and use up the rest of the 4”X4” panels that I bought before I make up my mind to use them on a regular basis though because I could probably get the same results on plain gesso treated hardboard, but I don’t’ know that for sure yet.
