New paintings on Multimedia Artboard

These are some small watercolors that I did over the weekend using Art Boards from Multimedia. Although I could have painted directly on the pre-prepared surface of the boards, I prefer a rougher texture so I painted these seascapes on 140# rough watercolor paper. I then mounted the paper onto the boards using acrylic gel medium, and varnished the paintings so they can be framed without glass.

This 4.75" x 7.5" painting is mounted on the Multimedia Ultralight Artist Panel, which is archival foamboard.



This 5" x 7" painting is mounted on the Multimedia Artboard, which is a hardboard product with a archival surface. Both products have a smooth archival surface that is ready to paint.

I've been wanting to try some boards for mounting watercolors, and I've found that these product samples from Multimedia Artboards were easy to use and gave me excellent results.
