Bruising…appears on the skin, caused by trauma, possibly a cut or blow to the body.  The injury makes capillaries burst, and blood gets trapped as a stain under the surface of the skin. I was  reminded of this as I coloured the paper I was working with.

 

Slight…after experiencing a violent assault, I was surprised that the bruising was so mild.
