"Upon Calm Reflection"

Scratchboard (24x18in)

A scratchboard of a white Mute Swan, from a photo I took recently at Rainbow Springs in Rotorua. There were 2 swans swimming around in a quite a dark lit pond... it created quite beautiful light and water reflections. I loved the light and knew when I was taking the photos I had in mind a scratchboard even then! Here you can see the original photo I took and how I adapted it in Photoshop to see if it would work with Scratchboard.
