White Chalk Drawing Lesson . . . Sort Of

The other day I posted a white chalk drawing of a cat.

I thought that if you liked that white-on-black technique you might want to learn more about it (well, I hope you do anyway).  So I’ve got a really lovely video of a portrait drawn in white chalk on black for you today.

Although I called it “sort of” a lesson, it isn’t . . . technically. But if you watch this artist’s technique, you’ll learn a ton. Pay special attention to his cross hatching.



Well, didn’t you learn a lot?

This technique reminds me of “reverse sculpture.” Watch the way the artist adds line and shape and even volume to the negative space to create this portrait.

Do you draw in white on color? Tell us what you like (or don’t) about this technique. Just post a comment.
