Prompt60 #40: Black & White Palette

"Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty – a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show." 
Bertrand Russell

Think of lusciously draped black velvet fabric, black jelly beans, high contrast and permanent ink. Of pencil lead smudges and charcoal pinstripe suits. This prompt is about using black and white and just a teeny tiny touch of a neutral color. Go for small variations in blacks, charcoal, grays and whites. A page without vivid color, just the intensity of black and white. Create a mood. You might do this prompt as a collage, with watercolor or perhaps sumi ink.
