I did this a few months ago for the acrylic Different Strokes challenge when we had to paint realism in black and white.
I did this with white acrylic ink on black painted mountboard (mat board)- no mixing with black, just thinner or thicker white acrylic ink. 7.5" x 11" and around 2 hrs painting.
Thanks for looking.:)

So dramatic and very beautiful. That white ink worked a treat.

Dramaticís the word. Very successful. The feeling of dense and rather menacing woodland is very strong.

A very interesting challenge.

This is Excellent!!! Black and white really has to be correct to work and look solid. In reading your description I can really appreciate how hard and the talent it took to produce this. The texture depiction is divine. I don't know how anyone else did in the challenge but I think its safe to say that you my friend, knocked it out of the park. :thumbsup: :clap:
