Scratchart Technique

After painting in the background I began the composition painting in with the Black India Ink.

Next I get to the fun stuff - I start scratching the black india ink down to the white underneath. Very detailed, and lots of patience is involved.

Lastly I paint the piece using a variety of inks, and watercolors. I then use a spray sealent.
