Leopard, wildlife, scratchboard

Scratchboard Art.

I use Ampersand museum series scratchbord™ panels, and scratch with several tools, mostly a small exacto knife. If I want to add color, special scratchboard inks are applied after I've completed scratching.

Charcoal Drawings:
Images are drawn on a primed wood panel or a heavy drawing surface that has been glued to a 1/2" foamboard. It is then sprayed with charcoal fixer, then a spray acrylic clear coat, followed by two brushed on coats of acrylic varnish, resulting in a charcoal drawing that is treated like a painting. No glass is necessary.

Most of the photographs were taken with traditional large and medium format film cameras loaded with black and white film.

I use various cameras and reducing backs to fit  4x5, 5x7, & 8x10 film, while the medium format (120 film) is usually 6 cm. x 6 cm. (2-1/4 square);  6x9 is also an option.

Check out my CAMERA PAGE.

Developing my own film, I then scan the  negative and print the final image digitally on an archival printer with archival papers.

Note. Its been several years since I've added any new photographs to this site, I'm now spliting my time between drawings and the grandkids.
