The photos are meant to represent the artwork as close as possible. The unique characteristics have not been edited out. This is a real life artifact of beauty. You can see all of the asymmetries and tiny splatters as well as the extreme precision of the artist's hand. Historically, artwork produced with these materials have lasted 500+ years.
I wanted to capture a peaceful moment; a time when you grant yourself permission to experience and appreciate the beauty of nature or reality. It doesn't need to take long, just a few breaths.
When working on this drawing I had a lot of snowflake moments. There were many quiet evenings spent inking.
