DIVA Challenge #218 White on Black

This week the DIVA challenge is to use white ink on a black tile or anything you find that is black.  Working with white on black takes a special (very gentle) touch.  For me, white on black is still very tricky, so I don't work with it often.  For this tile I used a Uniball Signo white pen and a Zenstone with a white charcoal pencil to shade.

  2. Well no one would ever guess that you found it tricky based on lloking at this tile. It's really rather good, There's movement, light and shade and a delicate touch. Nice work, Sue.

  4. Like how the Zander meanders across the tile. Nice use of the Charcoal pencil for highlighting and fill. I am not brave enough to try jetties with the white pens.

  6. A really nice combination of designs. I like your "flower" shape upper left side and the bands around the swirl.

  7. this is very very nice. I will have to try one of those zenstones...the name is intriguing if nothing else. And now that you mention it I think we have a white charcoal (chalk/pastel) General's pencil floating around here that isn't even sharpened. Thanks for the inspiration!
