3 stages in the #scratchboard #drawing of Prince.
1. All scratched
2. Color (watercolor) added to stage 1
3. Final. To get from stage 2 to this point, I selectively scratched the color, added a bit more color in a few areas, scratched a bit more, and then used a bit of color pencil where needed to round things out.

Just finished this portrait of Prince, the stately senior German Shepherd.
6" x 6", #scratchboard with watercolor.
#dogart #dog #drawing #petportrait #GermanShepherd

If you're on Instagram, I've posted a couple of Reels & in-progress images of this drawing.

I'm still juggling quite a few things, including portrait commissions, so I haven't made the progress here that I'd hoped to. In addition to video of the previous portrait of Pinky, I recorded video of the process on Prince that I'll share to the subscriber tier. In the meantime, check out the IG link above, and I'll post a short video of 3 stages of this drawing in the next post.

Short video of scratching in the highlights on a dog's eyes. I've recorded more video of process on this portrait of Pinky, including adding the first layer of watercolor. I'll add narration to that & offer it to subscribers.

I’m happy to announce that “Heart of San Pedro” (Western Screech Owl) has been accepted in the Society of Animal Artists‘ “Animal Impressions” Exhibition at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. The show runs August 21 – November 7, 2021.

This drawing is an 8″ x 8″ scratchboard, with watercolor. I took the reference photo at the San Pedro River Preserve in Arizona a number of years ago, so it’s fitting that the drawing will debut in AZ. 

I have a number of scans of this drawing in progress, but I still need to run a couple of them through Photoshop to clean up. Then I'll create a short video of the stages. I also have video of real-time drawing on this piece. I'll share that content to the $3 subscriber tier. I previously posted a short video and a couple of images of this drawing in progress, so please scroll back to see them.

I have a number of things in progress, read more on my blog: Pivoting

Some are new things & ideas for marketing, along with the "old" but very important things like pet portraits. This is my current portrait project, Pinky the Keeshond-Pit Bull mix. It's a 5" x 5" scratchboard.

This short video is another example of a scratchboard technique: adding whiskers. The longer video of this process that I'll post next is the first content that's part of the $3/month subscription tier. Once I determine my tier structure, I'll only make an occasional public post. I have some thoughts on perks for tiers that are more than $3/month (longer tutorials, content downloads, discounts on purchases, a mini piece of art...).

Another content example is this portion of a longer video of the owl scratchboard drawing. The full-length video, with captions or narration, will be available to subscribers. In this case, the longer video will be 5 - 10 minutes, depending on how fast I speed it up. It shows scratching & inking on a section of the bark.

I'm powering through that owl drawing (previous post) for a show deadline. After that, I'll have some time to contemplate & create new content. Until then, I'll share some existing scratchboard videos so potential subscribers can get an idea of what they'll see.

This is a PowerPoint presentation about scratchboard that I made a couple of years ago and converted into a video.

Current drawing in progress. Bark & more bark! Look closely & you can see the owl hunkered down in the hole in the tree. This is an 8" x 8" Ampersand Scratchbord. I'll add color to this drawing once it's all scratched.

Here's an example of the type of content subscribers will find here. This is a video of the process of scratching on a scratchboard drawing. It's a 2" x 2" Ampersand Claybord Art Tile. I had previously scratched the drawing, then added watercolor. In this video, I'm scratching the watercolor to fine-tune the drawing. I specialize in scratchboard, so initially, that's what I'll post, but I also work in other media, so some of those things will find their way here. I'm in the process of moving some of my past videos over from YouTube to Rumble. Those are also examples of content I'll share: AnnRanlettArt

I just joined this platform tonight, I need to rattle some ideas around in my head for a bit :-)
