Asking for Directions

Asking for directions
8x10 inches
Scratch art, Inktense and coloured pencils on Ampersand Scratchbord.
 
I have been flat out with commissions lately, but managed to squeeze in one little fun piece for the holidays. What fun I had with this piece and when time permits, I would love to churn out an entire series of whimsical pieces featuring scratch art and coloured pencils. I love the combination of strong contrasts and vibrant colours that can be achieved, and whilst it is slow going, I love every minute of the process. Wherever you are travelling in life, hope this puts a smile on your face :)

Hi Karen, I love that effect as well. The colours really work well with the black. I know what you mean about wanting to do more of your own. Commissions are great, we just need a balance. Happy New Year.
