20 Beautiful and Realistic Animal Paintings by Heather Lara

Heather Lara is an exceptionally talented traditional artist who uses the uncommon medium of scratchboard to capture the beauty of nature to the finest detail. Her masterful ability to use scratchboard to create realistic pieces with insane amount of detail is remarkable, especially for an artist with no formal art trainings. Scratchboard is done on a specially made board coated with a thin layer of fine clay. It’s then painted or airbrushed with ink and the picture is made by scratching away the ink with a sharp blade or tool. For the color pieces, several layers of a diluted ink wash are added during the scratching process to build up color and contrast.
