This is my first post, but I thought I'd share a couple scratchboards. It's nice to have this forum. Seeing all the great work is very motivating.

Glad you decided to share some of your work. May I say "WOW". I'm new to scratching and have only done 4 or 5 pieces. Talk about motivation, these just blow me away. I'm still amazed at the kind of detail possible with scratchboard. Great work, thanks again for sharing.

Great work, I wish I could see some close-up details, especially the horse. What are the sizes of these pieces and what kind of board did you work on?

12"x16"(top), 14"x18"(middle), 18"x24"(bottom). Thanks for the compliments. I've been doing these for a long time and I still love doing them. The contrast and detail are why I love them. All are done on Claybord Black. The pictures aren't the greatest, so some of the detail and black of the board is lost. I'll see if I can get a detail shot for you.
Thanks again
John

Great detail, and I always admire anyone who has the fortitude to take on large pieces. Has anyone else noticed that the quality bar just keeps going up since we got our own forum?

Holy cow!
I also would like to see some detail shots if you can get them.
Maybe it's my computer, but the I get the pictures that are posted singly to enlarge to a much bigger image than those posted in a group. These are really worth seeing in a larger format. This is wonderful work. Please post more of it.

Thanks Dave and Rod-Man. I'm going to try and post some detail shots soon. I've been swamped getting Christmas gifts ready.
Thanks again,
