Giving myself permission to play to get through self-isolation on a Sunday. These pieces started out as circles painted with watercolor in my giant sketchbook. Printed onto facing page to reduce wetness, then dried in the closed book with an inserted sheet of cling wrap to add texture. Finally a few strokes with the brush pen.
