Allsorts of Temptation

Allsorts of Temptation
8x11 inches
Scratch art, inktense pencils and coloured pencils on Ampersand Scratchbord
 
Oh what fun I'm having... and this artwork was especially fun. Traditionally, scratch art is a medium most often utilised for doing fur and feathers so I am trying to push myself and the boundaries to try different subject matters and textures which is keeping me awake at night (thinking of ideas), but I do love when the creative juices are flowing. The reference photo for this artwork was my own and luckily I got a few usable ones after the first shooting as they were all quickly gobbled by the family before I had even printed off a photo!!! :)

Love this one Karen.

I'm with Jennifer - I don't like liquorice but I think you can buy 'allsorts' without the liquorice now?

Really - I haven't seen them here Sue. People seem to either love them or hate them. I've had quite a few people say they went out and bought a bag after seeing this artwork and others who said Yuk - that's what makes the world great!!! :)

I think they're called Bassett Fruit Allsorts and there was a range called Bassett Dessert Allsorts but that may have been discontinue ...

I've never tasted them (not having a sweet tooth) but used to buy them for Mum-in-Law who loved them.

The liquorice ones are much more striking though and this is a brilliant picture
