On Friday I talked about wanting to try painting in black and white. And so I did!
Here are the two pieces I made:
Working in black and white was really intimidating at first. I tend to use extremes of color -- bright white and deep dark black. I'm not a mid-tone person. But, once I stopped fighting it, I really started to get into the subtlety of tone. I used black and white paint (and mixed them together) along with black and white pens and markers and pencils.
I think the first piece is somewhat more successful than the bottom piece, but I learned a lot in the process of making them. I'm think I'm going to keep experimenting with this idea for a while. It feels like exercise. I like that.
Thanks for stopping by!
