Oak twig Toned Ink Paper demonstration

In this drawing I made my own black paper by putting two washes down of black ink.

The paper is heavy# with a fairly noncommittal tooth.

Then I made a drawing using mostly white chalk and pastel in the negative space, building up the light slowly. I hit it with a black colored pencil in a couple spots right at the end.

The result was rougher than I guessed it would be, but I stuck with it and was happy I did.
