Firstly on a sad note, yesterday our adopted cat "Mr. Tom passed" away peacefully underneath our back stairs....he will be missed. I recently posted the story of how we came to look after him at the link below:-
This week I decided to try something different with regards to scratchboard art......a teddy bear!! I was not real sure as to how to go about scratching the fur as it is quite short, thick and curly and as usual I jumped into the deep end and decided to use my fibreglass brush hoping that I would be able to achieve the effect I wanted and so far so good. I still have a way to go to finish the board with a little more work on the eyes to be done and I will use a craft knife to scratch in the little jumper he is wearing. The next thing is whether to colour or not to colour the jumper!!! Here at least is a pic of his head.
