Black and White in splendour

Hi there...welcome back

As promised, here is another example of neutral tones in black and white. I must say I am really enjoying this colour combination and I am surprised at what I see.

You should try playing with this and just letting go...and see what happens. I started by stamping the coconut trees with black ink three times on the paper - one sort of to one side and two off either side of the paper to look like a cluster of trees.

Mixing a bit of Kuretake black paint with water, I began painting the sea into the paper. I just added paint to the brush and then painted until the ink went dry. I then added what I hope looks like sand on the beach and some shadows of the trees. Clouds were added to complete the look. The stamp I used is from 'daily bread designs'. I had to look that up as a friend of mine gave it to me for doing some work for her.
