Acrylic on Canvas

Enso Circles drawn with acrylic on canvas. I like to paint on unstretched canvas which has a similar raw raw and element quality as rice paper.

Watercolors

Enso Circles drawn with watercolors on rice paper. In the history of Enso Circles as an art form, colored and multicolored enso are a contemporary development.
