This is wonderful!:clap: You have really captured his attitude, Bertoni.:thumbsup: He looks like he's found plenty of field mice, being the wise owl. You could give lessons on scratchboard work.:cool:

I love this, your personal style comes throught regardless of the subject. I think that says something about your comfort/maturity level as an artist - you don't change your style when tackling a different subject.

Thanks much! Am working on my main medium - acrylic painting right now, but I gotta say, scratchboard is on my top of mind awareness lately!!:)
... am working a scratchboard engraving (I call them "engravings")at the same time!!
