What inspired you to create this artwork?

I do tattoos for a living, so I have had a lot of time off with this epidemic. So I have been painting lots of tattoo flash. This one I just wanted to do a study of a backpiece on a lady with a snake and some peony flowers. I just wanted to make the outline of the body faint so that you could visualize how it would sit on the body. Thanks for looking.


Where did you create this artwork?
How is your workspace?

I painted it in my house. I normally work at the tattoo shop but we closed it March 10, so I have been drawing and painting from home. This is acrylic ink on archers watercolour paper just painted it on my kitchen table.
