I got inspired by Scott Seibel’s work and decided to do some sandstone. I think I was 9 or 10 years old when I hiked to this ruin with my dad. I thought it would make a great subject for a scratchboard piece. This is a 5×7 Ampersand board. Most of it is rendered with an Olfa art knife that looks very similar to an Xacto knife. Some of the scratches are done with a #16 Xacto blade, which lets me do fairly wide strokes.
