having the background bleed through is effective

yes...
the random strokes are consistantly done
creating an inner network
visibly pleasing
and contribute to the whole

color and shape relations
do create a meditative mood
(except, perhaps, for the red...imho
that could be misread from the digital, though)

The seemingly flat shapes get a lot of life from the texture of the pencil--it's a lovely design overall, with, I think, just enough tension in the color complements. The only part I'm not reading well is the little 'beak' on the very top. I think it needs that slice of sharpness to balance the angles at the bottom, but the thick line inside the closed 'cut' feels congested and not quite right. I wonder what it would look like if the cut were just slightly opened, or had a bit of keyhole on the interior (if you get what I'm saying).

Are you studying Klee or Mirˇ? This brings both of them to mind.

Hi !

I have not study about art.

This method I use is my own invention when I do it spontaneous way.
It is very difficult to clear up how it happen.
I only place pencil on the paper and draw rapidly and look at it what els I'll be able to do about it.
