Well, stuck at home mainly, avoiding infection with treatment delayed for a bit due to low white blood cell count, I have carried on working with traces: marks made while working on another piece. So one piece literally generates the start of another piece and the starting marks are to some extent random or at least spontaneous.
Then depending on all the other stuff I seem to have on the go I work into the piece thus started and the results can be surprising. Like this one, which came about as I found an old batik tjanting from my teenage days doing batik with my mother. They were some of my happiest times. I filled it (not too full) with ink which flowed continuously resulting in a very fluid line.
I worry it might be a bit decorative but then it is what came out and having a continuous line of flowing ink greatly influenced the final marks I made. And does this decorative turn matter? And why am I worrying?
