How to do Black Paper Painting with School Paints

Black Paper Painting with School Paints:

Try painting on black paper instead of a stark white blank page.  

It adds a dramatic mood your painting even before you begin painting any colours on the page.  The black undertone seems to enhance the intensity of the colours.

See the examples below.

You can do the same if you are painting on a canvas by painting the background black. These days there are plenty of brands that have a Black Gesso (primer, sealer and undercoat) available in black
