“Pleased to meet you”, Swamp Wallaby – small scratchboard

When we stayed in a kind of tent like thing at Warrawong Sanctuary in the Adelaide Hills I took lots of photos of the marsupials that they have there. One such photo was, and don’t hate me, of my wife being attacked by a big kangaroo. It came at her from behind and really hurt her, scratches all over her face. I had to get a photo before I went to help – really bad habit of mine!! I’d be terrible in an emergency. My apologies Gaynor 😀

Anyway, fortunately I took many more appropriate photos and I’ve created a small scratchboard of a swamp wallaby. Here’s a little “work in progress”, from start to finish.

and finally the finished art, toned with India Ink and highlights rescratched
