"Lurking in the Swamp- Ally the Everglades Alligator" - 9"x60" - Scratchboard

"Lurking in the Swamp- Ally the Everglades Alligator" - 9"x60" - Scratchboard
Photo Description:
I chose the alligator for this work and used more aggressive mark making than usual because I wanted to convey the emotion felt behind it- anger. He comprises five panels. For this piece, I experimented with the technique of multiple layers of different strokes. The end result is about 10 different layers of scratches, all with varying degrees of pressures and values. He was awarded the "Walker and Graham Award for Excellence in any Medium". He also received a Silver Key in the 2015 Scholastic Art and Writing competition.
