"Joyce in the Garden" by Linda Snider Ward

This is a small watercolor on 7" x 5" Richeson Gessoed Hardboard. It's a work in progress. I had to put it aside because it was frustrating me a bit. The paint bubbles & seems to resist a little (kind of like Yupo paper). It's as if I'd gotten grease on the surface but I know I didn't because I unwrapped it and begin working immediately on it. I've worked on Aquabord before, which is specially made for water media & I really like the surface. Not sure about the Richeson, maybe because it's a surface that's meant for all kinds of paint. Anyone else use this type of art board?
