Everything has its beauty. But not everyone sees it. _Confucius.

I love to draw with black marker on white paper. If no paper around I draw and sketch with my Apple pencil and iPad.

1 — What does seeing black and white mean?

Is to have a simple view of what is right and wrong, or good and bad.

The black and white gives a dramatic dimension to the picture.

The black and white enhances the hardness of the characters, and it’s magical for portraits.

2 — A monochromic image is composed of one color.

Young Lady Portrait. Europe, Netherlands, Oil on wood, Paintings, Oil paint.

A monochromatic object or image reflects colors in shades of limited colors or hues.

Images using only shades of grey, with or without black or white, are called grayscale or black-and-white.

This art is one of my latest. I made with the iPad and Apple Pencil.
