Gang Gang Cockatoo scratchboard WIP

Hey everyone, I started my first board for the year last night and thought I'd share it with you. This is my first time using a fibreglass brush and so far I'm liking how it's going...



I'll keep adding updates as I go along

Thanks for dropping by to check this out. I've been a very busy boy today and made quite a bit of progress as you can see below. This should be finished tomorrow
