I have been working on an 8×10 scratchboard of a wolf. I am working from a wonderful reference photo taken by Gary Wilson.
I have finished my scratchboard of the Anemone Flowers. I have never done flowers in scratchboard, so this was done as a challenge to step away from what I am comfortable with and work on different techniques. I used scalpel blades, carbide-tungsten scribe, fiberglass brush, and electric eraser on the image. I used Ampersand Inks for the coloring. I had a lot of fun creating this piece and also learned a lot.
I am stepping out of my comfort zone and away from wildlife for my next scratchboard piece. I have started working on a small 3″ x 4.75″ board of flowers called anemone. I have been using a scratchboard nib, carbide scribe and a scalpel so far. I am just about ready to add some color to this piece. I have to add a little more scratching and get some leaves suggested in the background, then I can start adding in the first layer of color.
Here is my latest scratchboard. Carmie, a maltese/poodle that I did for some friends. I scratched it with a carbide scribe, scratch nibs and a fiberglass brush. It is an 8×10 colored with Ampersand inks.
