Some More Pictures....

I think I have all my white down now. I feel that I don't have enough black showing, but I have read that green and yellow need white behind them or they don't look right. I guess I will find out when I start adding colour to it.


  1. This should be quite dramatic when its done Paulette. Different papers react differently to colour layers and often a layer of white helps give the colour some vividness.

  2. Hi Paulette, I love this drawing! In my humble opinion, I would say that you have the right amount of white applied to do the job.

    You have probably already tried this, but if not here goes...when I am working on black paper and I am uncertain how a colour will show up, I test it first on a scrap piece of paper. If it isn't showing up too well, then I put down a bit of a light colour such as cream, peach or white and then cover that with the desired colour to see if that helps.

    I think you are off to a terrific start and I look forward to watching it develop.

  3. Hi Jeanette,
    Yes, the white definitely made the difference.I'll have to try some other colours(paper) in the future.

    Hi Teresa,
    Thank you.
    I did do some trial and error on the side of my page, but not nearly enough. Which probably accounts for the gummy look I can end up with. I tend to just keep playing until I get the colour I want.
