Alex Murray

Alex Murray works with scratchboard, india ink on clayboard, and acrylics. Scratchboard allows him to bring out the realistic detail in his subjects. Scratchboard is a form of direct etching where the artist starts with a masonite panel coated with white clay and then topped with a layer of black ink. A sharp tool is then used to scratch away the black ink to expose the white clay below, leaving a black and white image.

Alex is a Signature member of The International Society Of Scratchboard Artists,  licensed commercial pilot and contractor.
