M. Kathryn Thompson | Scratchboard, Mixed Media
48 Bolinas Road
“Working in Scratchboard is a joy to me because I work in reverse, scratching away the black ink to reveal the white underneath. On top of that I airbrush transparent acrylic ink. Often, I paint right on the original so I can scratch away further highlights in the color and other times I print the black and white image onto watercolor paper and airbrush on that.”
