  1. It is not difficult to paint a picture in white on white, because white is a tonal gradation from pure white to gray. Then the question is, what is pure white? It's simple… in watercolors, pure white is a sheet of paper, and, for example, in oil painting – white paint (titanium is lighter than zinc). Based on this, you can add white, black in different proportions, and you will get gray. Tonality, light intensity depends on the amount of black and white or the thickness of the paint layer, as in a watercolor painting.
    Creating a picture “white on white” is a grisaille technique, which is most often used in universities to teach and understand all the gradations of tone of subjects. As for how to create a high-quality picture, it doesn't matter if you work in color or black and white, the criteria for a high-quality picture are as follows::
    – a competent composition with a dedicated compositional center (what will be the main thing and what will be the addition);
    – an original idea that is revealed in the picture;
    – a harmonious or disharmonious composition (depending on the idea);
    – a variety of general tonal masses ;
    – if realistic painting, then the transfer of air space and linear perspective;
    – if oil painting, then the texture of objects (for example, glass is smooth, and sandpaper is rough);
    – detailing

  2. The trick question is that Malevich, in my opinion, did not want to shine as a painter, but created a worldview language that takes into account all the nuances and time and place of the show and other works, and all this is crowned with a halo of suprematism!

  3. First of all, you need to make a sketch. Fully plan your actions in the sketch: 1)Understand the tone. 2) Understand what is darker, what is brighter in the production. 3) Choose the main and secondary ones. 4)Place accents – color and meaning. You may need to generalize something and write it off.
