Scratchboard art on Essdee scratchboard
Graphite and coloured pencil on drafting film
Here is my latest commission which I finished a few days ago. Lately, as I have mentioned in previous posts, I have had the urge to get back to my roots which is based in Miniature Art. A few years ago, I attempted a scratchbaord piece and thoroughly enjoyed the process. I had taken this photo of a mother chimp embracing her infant, and thought it would be perfect to try the scratchboard art out on again. The traditional Scratchboard tools are not quite fine enough for a miniature piece and so most of this picture was done with very fine sewing needles ( I think I've bluntened a few along the way). Happy Valentines Day to all for Sunday - may you all feel loved by someone!!!!
