Hibiscus - White Clayboard engraving (scratchboard)

Here is the fourth square scratchboard.  This was to be part of a four-board set but, although I like it, the color doesn't match the other three very well.  I will probably create one or two more and then choose the best of them for the set.  This is a 6x6 inch board painted in acrylic ink and scratched.

Here are the steps I went through:

1) After sketching in pencil, I painted the elements with acrylic ink.

2)  Next I scratched out all the areas with a stylus.

3) Then I re-inked some of the colors and drew in dark areas with india ink.

4)  Finally, I re-etched the areas that had been re-inked and shaded. Finis!
