 :thankyou: Nolan for the new scraperboard class it is very interresting, did that once at school many, many years ago.  You sure explain it very well, as well as all the other classes I took with you.  Miss your classes, but I have to stick to my WC, for now. :smitten:

Danielle,  your comment made me re-think about the scraperboard course. I first discard the idea, as I am just starting and wish to stick to oil, and the basic drawing lessons.  But it is actually a form of drawing, so this may help me develop my drawing skills which are needed for painting.

And from what I can see and I have only a very vague idea of what it involves... it may just be plain fun and that by itself is worth signing up. 

See you there... Annie
Cheers, Annie

I may see you there for the cat and yes that is very interresting, fun and helpfull , but for now I am busy with WC and a commission and maybe more.  So I do not want to stress too much. 

I did take the drawing dvd classes with Nolan in feb 2014 and  a few more but after a while I needed some.

PS Annie, I painted one of the ruines in the MacKenzie King estate,   You must have visited that part of the Gatineau Park n'est ce pas.   I did not post it though.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: this looks like a  great course. Although I have started the oil painting course recently, I think for a little treat on the menu  I must try my hand on Scratchboarding. Its to say IF an only IF  I can  find the tools ect in SOUTH AFRICA..... :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
Thanks Nolan for another brilliant course!!!

The local art shop didn't have scratchboard, just a paper with a coating. He said that is usually for the younger public school kids and didn't recommend it for me. That's ok, I'll just have to pick up on this at a later date. It looks quite exciting though doesn't it? Can't wait to see what you all do!!!  :heeha:

I feel you pain Val, I have been up and down searching for it. Can't find the tools either. I did manage to find another strange looking tool will post a picture later of it.
My final search led me to a big art supply store in the city. They stock A1 sheets of scraperboard, will check there tomorrow. I can't wait to try it out.

Maryna, if you can find the board maybe you can start with an x-acto knife.  This is what Nolan is using in the 'Introduction to Scraperboard'.  I was thinking of starting that way.  I need to go buy the board. 

Do you have access to reasonably price on-line stores?   In Canada, we pay 30 to 50% more for goods compare to the US and we complain a lot... we should see that at least we are fortunate that we can actually get what we want, even when it takes 4-6 weeks for delivery.

Hope you find what you need.    :gl2:  Annie
Cheers, Annie

Marie, I found some Scratchboard and supplies on Loot (have not bought them yet) here is links to some http://www.loot.co.za/product/essdee-scraperboard-cutter-set-5-assorted-cutters/mddx-3039-g880

and

http://www.loot.co.za/product/essdee-scraperboard-white-305x229mm-10-sheets/spdk-3039-g480

The board is just a little bigger than A4, if you search on Loot there are various sizes. Just prepare yourself for the price tag  ;)
