My scratch board goal was to achieve motion in the picture. The picture on the top left is of the picture that the scratch board was based off of and the top center and right pictures are of sketches. The picture is of a pool deck at the Triangle Aquatic Center. While I was completing the scratch board, I also became very impatient with the scratch board. The pool deck itself is messy and sloppy. At the end I was able to add splashed at the end each lane to symbolize the swimmers swimming past the pictures edge; the splashes were the most successful part of the piece. If I were to do this again, I would make the splashes the center of the piece and would have taken my time with the pool deck.
