Chief Horsefeather - Indian figure

24x18 watercolor on Aquabord, drawn today with a brush dipped in watercolor onto the clay surface.  I had not really explored using this product although it is made here in Texas, and was given this large piece I'd started a failed portrait on.  Using the ink sketch (below) from a recent drawing, I had no photo reference, only an imagination.  Lifting most of the paint then blotting with a paper towel seemed to work fine as it could look quite heavy.
