George Ann has recently been working in scratchboard. This technique, which originated in Britain and France in the 18th century, utilizes sharp knives and tools to etch into a thin layer of white China clay that is covered with black India Ink. The etched area is then enhanced by various colored media to produce a sharp, distinctive image. The process produces a durable piece of art where the clarity of the stroke is preserved. This technique has enabled George Ann’s unique drawing skills to only be enhanced and viewed with more clarity.
