"Lace Moko I"

Scratchboard 9x12in

This reference photo is of my son Jakob (at 12 years old). I've been wanting to explore with the tonal values in shadow and light with this kind of portrait, with creating a scratchboard in mind. I borrowed a net curtain and on a sunny day took some b&w photo (as per right). Scratchboard portrait by New Zealand artist Karen Neal
