July 26 work in progress

The little chicken scrimshaw is finished, and I will post it as soon as its new owner sees it!

Next on the list is the cottage scrimshaw.  This is an illustration of the "Hansel Cottage" in Carmel, CA.  This is a custom piece, and it's just over 2 inches in diameter.  It'll be in full color.  This pic was taken right after I transferred my drawing onto the ivory, so it's a bunch of dots.  I've been working on all the outlines so far, and although there is a lot more done than there was when I took this photo, I haven't added any more ink so it doesn't look like much yet.  This is an extremely complex image and I need to think very carefully how I'm going to do this...
