EDM Challenge 293

This is not recent work but I had recently scanned it. It is made on gesso layered with Indian Ink and scratched out so that you get a negative effect, which works very well for something made of glass.

  1. I like the glass, I thought it was a photo at first. Good job. I prefer watercolors to the watercolor pencils, though I use the pencils sometimes. I can do watercolors but I am not a watercolorist.

  2. I am forever trying new things since I started drawing again a couple of years ago. Thanks for replying to the watercolor or pencils question.
    Let's make great things!

  4. Stunningly beautiful! Very interesting process. I did scratchboard years ago, when I was a teen - never thought about making one myself.

  6. Thanks everyone. I appreciate your comments. The glass is made up of many tiny scratches. The size of the work is only 3x5 inches or thereabouts.

  10. My first time visiting your blog (found you through blog hop)... Glad I looked in (have to see more, of course) but this painting of glass is really very nice. I never tried the indian ink on gesso, maybe something I have to give a try. Lovely work

  11. My first thought was that you were an incredible hand at free motion machine embroidery, and that it was done on suede or suedecloth. Either way, it is beautiful and skillfully done.

  12. Beautiful work and a great idea (gesso under indian ink). You've inspired me to try it out.
