Male Black Redstart

This picture of a male Black Redstart is created in scratchboard technique and partially washed with red India ink to highlight the beautiful color of the birds tail feathers. A scratchboard is made of a wooden panel covered with a basic clay layer and the surface is stained with black Indian ink. White lines were generated by scratching the surface and the remove of the ink coat. To stain the scratched areas diluted ink or watercolors can be used.
