German Shepherd WIP

A while back, I was asked to donate something to an auction to raise money for my local SPCA shelter. I chose to donate a gift certificate for an 11" x 14" custom pet portrait. This handsome German Shepherd was the winner!

This portrait is being done on 11" x 14" Ampersand Scratchbord using only a #11 Exacto knife and the Ampersand Claybord inks. There is still lots to be done yet, especially value tweaking, but it's certainly coming along. There's some corrections that I can see need to be done now that this is on my computer screen, and I will be making them soon.

Rebecca, If you see this, please feel free to comment in the comments section, or you can email me directly to let me know how you feel about how this is coming along.

Beautiful so far Nancy! The owners are going to love it! I'm really liking what you are doing with the scratch board. I'm thinking I would love to try it some time. Very Cool!!

Thank you Gemma! I am enjoying it very much, and scratchbord goes so much faster than cp's!
