Workshop Description:  Striking contrast drawings are created by breaking a drawing into positive and negative space and shading them with only white and black colored pencils. An abstract design is cut out of black paper and glued onto a white illustration board. The selected drawing for the project is then transferred onto the illustration board. All of the shadows in the positive or white areas of the drawing are shaded in with a black pencil while the highlights remain the white of the paper. All of the highlights in the negative or black areas of the drawing are shaded with a white colored pencil while the shadows remain the black of the paper.
