Black Beauty by outofmypen Black Beauty by outofmypen
Prismacolor soft core pencil drawing done on black Canson illustration board. Always a challenge to do, but you use the color of the board as one of the dark values.

Please allow us to know the secrets! :)

Yes this is a drawing.  It is done with soft core prismacolor pencils on black  illustration board.  I will sometimes use water color to lay a ground for larger areas of color.  I usually work from photos that I take at car shows.

It's always tricky to work on black surfaces, as the color kind of absorbs into the paper. thank you!

Wow! Stunning drawing. I love the reflections in the chrome. One day I'm going to try drawing on black or colored paper. The results are amazing.
Fantastic attention to detail and an outstanding job! Thanks for sharing.

I would encourage you to try it, the results can be a lot different than just white paper. My only suggestions are to be prepared for eye strain! Also working on a black surface, the colors get absorbed into the paper more so than on lighter colors, so you need to go over it a couple of times. Thanks for your comments.

It might have been a challenge, but wow, it was clearly worth it! Having the black background must help get that wonderful contrast (something I'm still having trouble with). This feels like a classic photorealist piece of the 70s, I thought it reminded me of a piece by Richard Estes, but then I google imaged him and couldn't find it so maybe I'm thinking of someone else.

Thank you! Keep working on contrast. If you have access to a digital camera that has a Black and white function, take pictures of your work as you go, because it will let you know if you are getting y\the contrast you want.
