Scratch and Sniff

Well I’ve just finished some scratch art that I’m excited about. It turned out really well and it’s something a little different. I did a big clock and a woman on a staircase…I think it came out a bit surreal…could just be me.
So the idea came to me while flipping through one of my Spectrum Art books I love so much. I found a picture that had a clock in the background and I was thinking how cool that would look in Scratch Board. But the clock couldn’t be all by it’s self so I tried to add a women that appeared to be waiting, since she had a big Ol’ Clock right behind her…and putting her on the stairs seemed to complete the whole “waiting” effect.
Scratch Art is easier once you get the hang of it. I usually start out by drawing a small rough draft on paper of how I want it to look,

then lightly draw it in pencil on the board before scratching. I find this helps me to not mess up…since there is no erase on Scratch Board.

Then I get-a scratchin!
