Sometimes you have to get away from things that must be done and just put something down on paper, playing with color, tone, value. I even got out the walnut ink and bamboo pen and used a large stick of water soluble graphite, too.

This one is odd, but it is just playing with shapes and colors.
Happy 1st of July
