Mark-making drawings

Lent drawing 32a © Karen Thiessen, 2014
This is an old photocopy of a security envelope pattern that I enlarged. Recently I ran it through the copier again with one of my Letraset drawings and then I added more evidence of my hand with acrylic ink and a fine brush. That I left an area unpainted is happenstance: I had done enough mark-making for the day and planned to fill in the rest at another time. When I looked at it the following day, I realized that it resembled a mountain during a snowstorm and decided to leave it as it is.
