Work in progress.
I am playing with scratchboard. It is white clay coated board that has a blackened surface. You can basically use any sharp tool to scrape away the black.
It’s a bit of a brain bruiser for me, having to get my head around working with highlights rather shadows. This is also an unforgiving medium. You cannot make a mistake.
My eyes are doing funny things. Does it even look like Gail?
EDIT: Completed artwork here.
