Black and White Surreal Abstract Bird Skull

Bird skull beneath white lines, surreal abstract art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Dormiveglia Black.

It’s a black and white version of Dormiveglia. At first I thought I’d only do this image in color, but it works very well in black and white. Actually it’s a really obvious candidate, so I don’t know why it took so long to occur to me.

It’s rare to merely desaturate a color image and have it work, though. Normally adjustments to brightness, contrast, and overall tone have to be made. However, this one is a straight desaturation. Regardless, I still experimented to see if any adjustments would improve it, but eventually concluded that the simplest route was the best in this case.
