This is one of my first scratchboard drawings done in the early '80s.
I enjoyed doing them in those days, and trying some again 20 or so years later in 2006! http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/07-Jun-2006/28168-Daddy_Dan_1970s.jpg

I adore good scratchboard work and this is no exception. I like the rather graphic nature of this work. Nicely done, welcome to Mixed Media buddy.

thanks much!! I found a nice big chunk of Canson Grattage from the old days, and it won't be long before I'm experimenting with it!!

Hi Bertoni, great to see your scratchings. Its just lovely. I especially like the shirt, you got a lot of movement in the folds.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with now. Subject material is always a problem for me:D :wave:

Thanks!
I'm also looking for a subject. Meanwhile I think I'll post one or two more of my earlier scratchbds to get myself energized. Am searching for all my scratchboard tools that I stashed away...
