A commissioned scratchboard @ 46in wide x 33in.
The client's request was for a large piece (this is the largest scratchboard that could be imported into New Zealand), with a little bit of bling to adorn her!
She was aptly named "Ms Highland Bling".
A photo in the studio with myself to show the scale of the artwork.
The frame choice is a wide chunky Larsen Juhl Majorca frame, love how it's worked!
The final artwork...
The reference photo was taken from a trip to Scotland in 2015. I used to work in the northern Highlands of Scotland near Dornoch in the early 90's, so it was lovely to revisit a few of these places. We came across a Scottish roadblock of several highland coos (we didn't make it to the end of the road!)
Painting the earrings in acrylic,with little prisms to look like diamonds, and a pearlescent glaze for a slight sheen
Ms HIghland Bling's forever home, in Glenorchy - love her view!
