Shall We Dance? by Heatherzart Shall We Dance? by Heatherzart
18" x 24"
Scratchboard and Ink

A commission based on A Glimpse of the Past . In my reference photo, these two were actually "arguing" with another couple over nesting space and it was pretty funny to watch. But even when there are no other birds around, cormorants do an elaborate mating ritual, the males are very attentive to the females.

Sorry cannot critique as I have never done scratchboard, let alone inking one in and do not even have the slightest clue as to how to go about it. But I can say this: "If a Queen of scratchboard exists You mylady are she."
