Ink House Portrait

Though most people prefer watercolor house portraits, I enjoy doing the occasional ink drawing. My challenge is to convey shadow and detail accurately using a variety of pen strokes. Determining the various colors is no longer a problem since the portrait is black and white. A double mat with black as the inner and off-white as outer shows off the completed artwork quite well. This is also true for watercolors; the black and white color combination is neutral enough to enhance any painting.
