I had the pleasure of meeting Rick Wheeler at the Cattlemen's Western Art Show last spring and am so pleased that he has agreed to offer a Scratchboard & Watercolor Workshop: Combining Drawing with Painting next month. Rick is one of the few scratchboard artists using scratchboard as mixed media, incorporating watercolor, inks, oil, and acrylic. It is a great drawing medium, and for anyone interested in improving their drawing skills, scratchboard provides a great opportunity.
Rick was recently invited to participate in Prescott College's 50th anniversary 'Alumni Retrospective Show' at the Sam Hill Gallery, Prescott, AZ, October 18-November 19, 2016. He is an alum of the college and these three images of his are great examples of scratchboard's wide variety of subject matter.
