White on Black

INBETWEEN IFS... I have decided to try and do a little more posting as my early New Year's resolution! These are pieces I did with oil pencils and my new Prismacolours. I really like the look of the black background.
This was inspired by Andrea over at Colouring Outside The Lines After viewing her work on black paper and looking at Hundertwasser's site (WOW! These places actually exist!) I had to get a Strathmore Artagain Black art pad and try for myself!!! I'm hooked!!

Smitten- Illustration Friday Challenge. AND "who" was more smitten than the owl with the kitten? I ask you?! LOL!
My grandmother used to recite this to me when I was young. Watercolour pencils with ink detail.

And here is their child! LOL

The Owl and the Pussycat poem
The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are, you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are."
Pussy said to the Owl "You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing.
O let us be married, too long we have tarried;
But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows,
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose, his nose, his nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.
"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling your ring?"
Said the Piggy, "I will"
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon.
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand.
They danced by the light of the moon, the moon, the moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
