This is the subject of my first workshop on scratchboard art I am running on Friday as part of the South Australian Living Artist exhibition in our local gallery during the final stage of the exhibition. It looks a lot harder than what it is.

I don't do abstract often, but now and then I just like to have a go.

Glazing over grisaille.
This was a very interesting exercise using 7 layers of glaze.
This digital painting created on my iPad, shows the emotions and feelings many of us keep well hidden for fear of being judged, or misunderstood. Through my art, I hope to explore my emotions and in doing so, show others like me, that creativity is a great natural healer.
I decided to challenge myself using the same techniques learnt in yesterdays lesson with these little leather shoes.
