Try this

 ContourPlot[Cos[x - y] + Sin[x^2 + 3 y], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -3, 3},
 PlotTheme -> "Monochrome",ContourStyle -> Directive[White, Opacity@.1]]

enter image description here

You can also use ColorFunction -> ColorData["GrayTones"] for gray shades or even write your own following the reference.
