Scratchboard Still Life

Here is a new scratchboard. Of course it is an Ampersand Art scratchboard...my favorite medium http://www.ampersandart.com/ I haven't added any color yet. Wanted to scan it first and I've printed it out to add color to the print first. This is a new thing I'm trying. I saw a great book this past week that was illustrated by a fantastic scratchboard artist. The title is: "A Tallgrass Prairie Alphabet" by Claudia McGehee. www.claudia-mcgehee.com Great work!
She uses a different product (Essdee from England) and scans and prints on watercolor paper and then paints on the paper. I'm going to try it just to see how I will translate it. I'm sure the result will be different from her and yet inspired by her technique.
