Sometimes it helps to press rather hard with the white to get it to take, but start out with a medium pressure till you see how it reacts with the dark. Maybe it'll work, and maybe it won't, but at least this is your chance to experiment and see if it does.
    Thanks Sandy, I'll try that. I did try a small area of white on it but I didn't smudge it in. It's a big sky though.

    Life is short, bend the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, live passionately and never forget anything that made you smile.

With a dark sky like that it would look wrong with the sun shining on the trees so I'm scraping it and will try it again another time. I'm too bummed to start over now. I'll have to find something else to do.
    Sometimes things don't work out the way they are expected. Part of the learning curve. Don't be bummed, be happy Every drawing isn't going to turn out the way you expect which sucks but good for you for deciding to move on to other projects.
