Grandpa Elliott in Miniature

Grandpa Elliott in Miniature
3x4 inches
Coloured Pencils and Scratchbord tools on Scratchbord
This is the second time that I have taken the time to draw Grandpa Elliott's Portrait. I wanted to try out some scratchbord in miniature and combine it with coloured pencils and his wonderful beard and the highlights on the glasses seemed to lend themselves perfectly to scratchbord art. This artwork is for the upcoming Australian Society of Miniature Art exhibition and with entries due by the end of next week, I am rather ambitiously (or stupidly), hoping to get another one completed within that time frame.

Lovely work Karen. I liked the first Grandpa Elliott and this is equally wonderful.
Good luck with the exhibition (and your plans for the 2nd entry) :-)

Another amazing piece Karen. I'm always astounded at how you can get such detail into such tiny works of art. Beautiful work.
