You definitely have the feel and confidence for scratchboard. That is a very unforgiving medium to work in. I know several people that would drool over this piece, my husband included. He was impressed :D, and though his cycling days are over pretty much as a mechanic any fine machine captures his attention. I also appreciate these sleek beauties, but alas my cycling days are over too.......lol

Hello Calleorange:

I have to agree with Sassy. This is a very unforgiving medium, but you have found a way to excell with the scratchboard work. AWESOME WORK!! Looking forward to seeing the finished work and any other new art you have.

You're work is AMAZING! I've tried scratchboard a few times, but never got the hang of it. I always got frustrated with it so easy because I couldnt see the lights and darks in my head, even when looking at a photo, when I worked in scratchboard. Hehe, remember making scratchboards though in school? Maybe some are a little older and didnt do it, but in my old elementary school we'd make them. We'd paint w/ water colors or crayons on a white sheet of paper, then paint black tempra paint mixed with some Dawn dish liquid over the top and let it dry. then as you scratched you saw the colors you had painted :) I think it'd be fun to take a class in college on how to make your own whatevers...it'd be more fun that way to draw on or whatever depending on the class.

Beautiful job! Now wasn't it worth all that work?:D Scratch board can be such a tough medium to work in, but you have handled it very well. Do you plan on doing more in the near future, or take a break for awhile?
