Today I am sharing my second scene for the May challenge at Craft a Scene, 'Ships in the Night'. There is still plenty of time to join us in the challenge.
On my last scene, 'The Black Pearl', Alison left a comment that it reminded her of Peter Pan, which I totally agreed with, and one reason might have been that we have often read Peter Pan at bedtime lately. I thought it was a great idea for another scene. Thank you Alison!
I was in the mood for a black and white scene. If you have never tried this, I encourage you to try it out, it is a great way to learn about values, shadows and highlights and it is fun doing a scene with very few inks. You could use only black ink, but I like to start out with a lighter grey and used two shades of grey in addition to black. The stars and highlights were added with a white gel pen and quite a bit of mist with white pigment ink, dry-brushed on the scene.
Thank you for stopping by!!
