Painted with watercolors and inks for a class I'm taking.
I see a lot of terrific textures in there. Give my regards to your teacher for the exercise in B&W. He/She knows the importance of seeing shade values. In the short time I've been viewing your work, I suggest taking a look at the acrylic pour painting style; lots of YT videos on the various methods involved in this technique.
Black and white? not like you but very nicely not like you...
Nice work on the tonal range-
Thanks! I checked out some videos and gave it a try, but I'm afraid I didn't have any luck getting it to work. I'll try again when I need a break from my latest class (Romantic Roses). It certainly looks interesting.
