Title: Zilpa's Scratchboard
Post by: Zilpa on August 30, 2015, 10:32:12 PM

This is one I did today. I am running my first workshop at our local gallery on Friday doing scratch art as part of the South Australian Living Artist exhibition. I am excited but also petrified. There are 6 people booked in. :sweat:

Awesome Zilpa, I bet you will be fine  :clap: I spent the day teaching thirty 10 and 11 year olds to draw a landscape and will be teaching another 2 classes over the next two days as well. I love it and they don't even ALL want to be doing it, so having 6 who want to be there will be great  :yippee: :congrats:

 :thankyou: Lisa, yes mine are adults and they want to be there. I think 6 will be a good number plus I am limited because of space.

Zilpa, if you show them how to anything like this.....you will be hotter than hot cakes!!!  :heeha:   This is brilliant! The eyes are so alive, and the hair is excellent.  O0   You most definately can step into this class with pride and confidence. They will be thrilled and become some of your biggest fans.
Trust me on this......ask Sharon!  :whistle:     :2funny:

I always jump in with both feet, sometimes it works sometimes I land on my butt. The group of 6 I am teaching are all artists that have not tried scratch art before so I am quiet confident that they will get a result they will be happy with.

 :thankyou: Annie and Mea, this is so much fun. For those of you getting into scratch art there is a scratch art facebook page where you can show your work and get comments from other scratchboard artists. In fact I have just checked and the page is called scratchboard artists.

Time To Rest
Scratch art on Ampersand Scatchbord 14"x 11"


This one took 12 hours all up but was a lot of fun. I find I can only do about 2 hours a session so it took a bit longer than expected. I have been asked to do a follow up lesson for the people who did my last one and also there a quite a few who missed out last time that still want to do it.

Well, that explains why we have not heard much from you in a while.

Great work on this.  Scratchboard art is really your strength.

Keep at it.  Your students are lucky to have you.

 :thankyou: Mea, Liana, Lisa and Danielle. Yes sorry I have not been around much lately Mea I hhave been busy creating. I have also been getting into encaustic art in a big way. I have run out of scratch boards so I will have to order some online as I can't get them locally. Damn I hate waiting for supplies. :2funny:

Most happy to hear you are enjoying scrapboarding and teaching it.  The leopard is wonderful.

I had enjoyed Nolan's lessons, but I cannot do it when I have a flare-up of osteoarthritis, and at best times 1 to 2 hours create lots of stiffness the next morning. 

Jumping head and toes into something is good, shows you get passioned about something.  I see nothing wrong with that, sometime it is successful, sometime it is not.  But great success only comes with great passion.  Same in science.

Good luck!  You are doing great and I really enjoy seeing your work.

Wow, Zilpa.  Is there no end to your enthusiasm for trying different things?

I am on my way to a search engine to find out what encaustic art is.

Zilpa,

I just YouTubed encaustic art. OMG, what an amazing medium.  I'm sure there must be a steep learning curve because it looks like it would take a lot of practise.

Here's on e on making encaustic landscapes if anyone is interested.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRphX2ncM0Y (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRphX2ncM0Y)

I am so looking forward to seeing what you have made with this type of art.

Thanks for opening my eyes to something new (to me), as I see it's been around for a very long time.

 :thankyou: Nina, Kathy, Val and Bryce, I have just ordered 10 more boards from the US as it is  a lot cheaper than ordering them here. I have gone for 16" x 20" a bit bigger than I am used to, but a nice size. I am looking for subjects already.
