Scribble Picnic: Black & White

'future spell'

'closeup'
This week's Scribble Picnic is Black & White. This is a first draft and the image at left in the circle is a placement but it's suppose to be a person falling or something, perhaps for the next theme but it's not decided.  Pieces like this sometimes ends up looking exactly like this and sometimes I may just change everything but the main idea is there. For more Scribble Picnic, go here.

    1. I'm more of a color person so I don't usually use so little color in a piece, this will probably have more colors when finished.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

    1. the kitten is an idea from another piece that I did a while back but I love the idea of a witch having a white kitten/cat.

  5. I love all the details in this one, the crescent moon on her chain belt, the white strands in her black hair and the style of the mask, plus the other things that Mary has also mentioned! The swirling lines that bring everything together are so lovely!

  6. Another really enticing, mysterious piece, Lissa, intend or not! I love the masquerade mask (And Alex will love it too for sure). I love how you've depicted the theme with her jet black hair and the white cloth. Can't wait to see what else you might "conjure" up here! Thank you so much! Always so fun clicking the the link with your name on it.

  7. The details are lovely, the sweet little kitten, black and white nails, her mask, the scroll and the moon hanging from her belt. They make this piece magic.

  10. Your work is always to "clean and crisp"...it's perfection. She is lovely and a great way to show black and white theme.

  12. Lissa, I commented on the "tie it up" piece a few times I think but still don;t see the comment. Can you see if it is under "comment moderation?" I jsut added another shorter note just in case. It was such a lovely piece too! I wanted you to know that I did take the time to leave a good worthy comment! :) Thank you.

  15. Lissa,
    I don't know where my first comment went. I was doing them on my phone as we were away. But I love the glasses and as usual your picture is gorgeous from the dress to the hair.
    Blessings
