Black and White Art-Making Ideas with Stencils and Masks

Today's first black-and-white art sample features hot air balloons created with freehand drawings.  

Featured stencil: my 9" x 12" stencil Facets.

Developing the art sample above, I started with a mix of white gesso and liquid matte medium; and I used the subtractive/reductive technique to lay in the stenciled area.  My 9" x 12" Facets, in its entirety, looks like this:

After creating today's hot air balloon art-sample, I switched to a second subject -- vases -- and used zinc white acrylic instead of a gesso-liquid matte medium mixture ... 

Above:  These stencil-patterns of smaller vases in the upper left and lower right were created with my 9" x 12" stencil Vases.

My 9" x 12" stencil Vases looks like this:
