Well I didn’t expect that.
I love it when that happens, I basically washed the paper and stood back, what to do? I like it when the pen/brush does the work for me.
I realized quickly that my squares weren’t all going to be the same size as I was free handing this. So I started messing around with their sizes and just let that flow.
Once that was done I added the shadows, it’s hard to see but there is a bunch of red in those shadows as well.
I deliberately used larger and smaller shadows to create ‘depth’ on the page, it kinda works.
This was a fun exercise in working a simple shape by hand and trying to make it as uniform as possible.
