INTERMEDIATE 2-D ART
scratchboard & watercolor
My boys took to scratchboard like ducks to water.
Scratchboard is posterboard thickness with a black coating over top.
Two different shaped nibs are used to scratch away the black to get to the whiteboard underneath.
Then watercolors are applied into the white areas.
But good quality scratchboard is hard to find.
My source here in the Southland is Westminister Art Supply Warehouse.
But it's expensive so be warned.
Senior Nathan Chong drew this beauty in it seemed like just a couple of minutes.
It was one of my favorite pieces of his all year.
And this was only his practice piece!!!
Know that these practice pieces are tiny,
only about 2" by 2" or so.
They have to be because of the expense.
Senior Jovani Garcia did this landscape with the fisherman.
Junior Jonathan Hsu drew this very expressive bird.
And we end with senor Michael Cantu with this magical landscape.
I'm looking forward to sharing the larger after pieces.
They are incredible!
