This Siberian tiger has a wonderful hair swirl just below his ear that's made for scratchboard. This small 5" x 7" piece is mounted on a 9" x 12" scratchboard and then framed without glass for a welcoming up close view. Working in this size is quite a challenge, I have respect for other scratchboard artists who work this small. With so little space to plan out the detail and develop contrast I had to readjust my thinking, large pieces are definitely my comfort zone even though they take hundreds of hours to complete. Next will be some small color pieces, great for collectors! Requests are welcome.
