I really don’t do calligraphy, but I can find a state of serene calm for long stretches while drawing these curving lines.
Started to color this one, then stopped myself, thinking I might like to have it preserved as a potential coloring page.
And then I colored it in. Actually pretty glad I saved the line drawing first!

I don’t often go back and work on a drawing after posting, but this one seemed worth it
