Thank you to all for your comments and help on this. I have, I think, now finished and have, in the process had some fantastic advice from, amongst others Diana Lee, on our new dedicated scratchboard page on Paint my Photo website, (check it out under http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/group/drawing-graphite-charcoal-ink - scroll to the Welcome heading and click on no 9 - scratchboard). I have added a background etc, so it looks a lot better. I am really pleased with it now, though, as always, it looks a lot better in the flesh, rather than an iphone photo, but I hope you agree. Just got to spray and frame.

Below, see before and after and apologies as the lighting is different on both photos, but you get the drift.......

Wonderful as usual, Jenny, and the bkgd really does ground the image. Well chosen and beautifully executed. Again, as usual from you.

The background made a huge difference. A sweet image. Love it.

Thank you guys. It's amazing what a background can do.

Goodness, I was sure I had previously commented on this. I like the rear view. You've certainly conveyed the idea of patiently waiting. Nicely scratched.

Yes, you did Trilby, thank you. This is a second showing with the background and shadows added. You are not going mad......
