Experimental: Scratch Drawing

I have been experimenting with scratch drawings. This is my first attempt, a scratch drawing on a 3.5" x 5" piece of Claybord that I coated with India ink.

It is after Velazquez's painting of the same subject. That painting is my favorite depiction to use when I wish to think about the Crucifixion, because it is very simple, reverent, and unemotional.

Well, I uploaded a large scan, but it always seems to display small. Is there a way to make it big?

Well, anyway, one can see a full-size upload at my website: see michaelortiz.com/Documents/INRI.jpg
