well, the idea of the painting was after i spent a day with someone who pretends to be someone else , more important!i was so pissed off that i sat on the kitchen floor when everyone was sleeping & i made it!the first one was with oil pastels,this was to try it with my favorite ink!yes it adds some mystry..i don't know how i did it, i was just angry & painting!!the charcoal pen is a hard one not a soft one and the ink is pure no added things.the paper is craft paper, cheap dark paper..yes!!it could be warning you all from wearing masks!! to be ourselves more !!
