View Full Version : Strathburg Cathedral scratchboard

Also posted in P & I. This magnificent cathedral has a clock that coughes, sneezes and chimes on the noon hour and little men run around in cercles and to strange things. A mechanical marvel...The king in his infinate wisdom had the designers eyes poked out so he could never build another one.
Anyhow here is the scratchboard (claybord) 8" x 10". It took about 100 hours. Victor.... :wave: http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/02-Nov-2005/62776-Strasbourg_Cathedral.jpg

Victor, this is magnificent. I cant get over the talent you have for perspective and then on scratboard, to me that would be so much more difficult. Very good work!

This is an extraordinary piece! Such complexity of tone and texture as well as perspective. quite beautiful!. Have you considered liscensing these with a card company? They would make wonderful cards, also posters.

Victor, your work is awesome. Your scratchwork is absolutely pristine, and your perspective is perfect in every piece you do. I do think you would be extremely successful if you submitted them for greeting cards and posters. Keep them coming Victor. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
