Sweet Square 001

Playing catch up, but here is my first Sweet Square.  

Sweet Squares is a project created by Diandra Mae, and inspired by Melissa Sweet, a children's book illustrator and artist. Melissa makes a point of creating art every day just for herself in little 3-inch x 3-inch squares. Find out more about Dee's project here

Sweet Square 001 was created using distressing ink and a sponge on Arches 90lb hot press watercolor paper. A paper circle was cut and taped to the middle to mask the center. I'm currently working on a nighttime illustration, and have been playing with different effects and textures to create a full moon glow. This was one of those experiments but on a much, much smaller scale.
