|Bockingford blue tinted watercolour paper. |
Distress Ink. Black ink, white gel pen, graphite.
With the 'No mistakes' motto in mind I carried on - despite the fact that this rather textured paper isn't ideal for very tidy straight lines. I'd been carrying this idea in my mind for a while - wondering how would it look if you drew Florz, auraed it, and then drew it again behind the first?
I needed something simple and repetitive today. I needed something that didn't need much thought, much imagination. Just lines and more lines and simple shading in predictable places.
Perhaps there is a message for this week, perhaps for this year, in this seemingly simple tile. That behind one barricade there might unfortunately be another - but that if you break through enough of them there is always the promise of light.
