I’ve been continuing to work on this scratchboard and it’s coming along leaf by leaf. For now, I’m focusing mostly on the bushy leafy areas. The branches will come a bit later. I’ve also added a couple of new tools to my collection. A smaller fiberglass brush which looks like this.
And a curved X-Acto blade like this, which is great for more stark markings in the leaves.
And my workspace has become cluttered and messy, but that’s half the fun of art. It begs to be messy!
And finally, here are two updates on this scratchboard.
A couple of close-ups to show detail.
Thank you for looking!
