Pair of Abstract Drawings

The top drawing was the original. Drawn with sepia multiliner, then colored with Copic markers.

When I finished it, I saw that the next layer of paper was interesting too. I rotated it 180 degrees, added some lines with cobalt blue multiliner, and touched up the coloring in a few places. That became the bottom drawing.

It also gave me the idea for "splotching through paper" as a technique, using 20 lb. or lighter weight paper as the top layer.

Copic colors used: Sepia and cobalt multiliners, G21, V09, B32, R02, RV11
Paper: 20 lb. all-purpose copier paper.
