This process is layering dye on a board that has a clay coating that allows for scraping into. The dye is absorbed into the clay and changes the color throughout. Then layers of India ink covers the entire surface. Then and exacto knife is used to etch/remove the black to allow the colors to show through. These are very meticulous and detailed.

I will work from photos and get some input from you on under colors, and tones. Please understand, because of the black color and technique, there is always a dark and/or melancholy mood to these commissioned portraits.
