Sorry for the lack of updates, but I have finally got some time.:)
I eventually finished off my sumatran tiger scratchboard 14x18 which I decided to title 'A little Closer'. I think as my first proper background piece it was a success!
I have also started another tiger scratchboard which is 16x20. The reference based off one of Niranj Vaidyanathan's great photos. It is a bengal tiger and I am enjoying working on this piece. It too will include some background.
In addition to this I will be starting another two boards with one being a cheetah and the other will be zebra which is quite different to the big cats I am obsessed with. I have not forgotten about my two acrylics but I don't think I will be completing the tiger but I will definitely be finishing the lion some time soon.
This year I have decided to get more serious and hope to get some of my work displayed and a website up and running too. As a UK scratchboard artist which are thin and few I hope that someday I can do my bit in getting scratchboard the recognition it deserves as a fine art medium.
