Just finished this one...8"x10" on Black Claybord.
Took a shot back in the '60s with an old Hasselblad type camera and thought the scene would be good for a scratchboard.
It's Union Square in NYCity. C&C always appreciated.

You're right, perfect for scratching. It's interesting to see all the different styles we represent.

Thanks for the comments!!
I found doing this one a bit difficult, because of decisions re: lighting, shadows etc. that may or may not have been the way to go! :confused:
It became very experimental getting to the finish!
Hey, I regard each one as a learning experience!!!!!!!!!:)
