Hi all,

It was suggested that I post this here by the people at the wildlife forum....they thought you might be interested. It was posted there because I really didn't know where else to put it. It was called "Bear Feet Scratch" over there, but this is the actual title of the piece.

Hope you like it! 5X7 on clayboard black

Is this scratchboard ? If so you are in the right place. The subtle shading is just stunning. :clap: :clap: :clap: Is this from a photograph ? It reminds me of one I saw on here somewhere....probably yours !

Would love to see a WIP sometime. There are several terrific scatchboard artists here and you're at the top of the list with this !

Thanks for showing it over here.

Lorna....thanks so much for posting here...welcome to the forum.
This is yet another absolutely stunning work of art. It's beyond belief how you get such subtle shading.
I watched your work on 'Joseph' avidly and with my chin on the floor.:D
Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us :clap: :clap: :clap:

edited to say.... I love the title:D

lisilk, Thankyou and yes this is scratchboard.

And also, you're right, this is from a photo which you saw here(RIL) but not mine. It was by "maryeve" who I neglected to credit. Thankyou maryeve!!! I loved the photo so much I just had to do this.

I have done a wip you might be interested in and an article called "Joseph" in the portraiture forum.

Kalibabe, thankyou!

Jakealley, thankyou for the welcome...I now know where to come with my scratches that don't fit the other forums!! Thanks also for your kind words about "Joseph" and the title of this piece...I'm glad you enjoyed them!!
