Here is another set of words for the third month of April from @togetherweletter over at instagram.
Materials used: Paper – ordinary copy paper; Brush – pentel aquash, small; Ink – hydrus watercolor in hansa deep yellow
This week’s goals:
- try using ordinary copy paper
- try using a smaller nib water brush
- My water brush glided smoothly with the ordinary copy paper compared to when I used watercolor paper (canson) last week.
- The smaller nib water brush is more flexible compared to the synthetic brush (cotman size 2 brush) used last week.
- Instead of drawing in my helping lines, I placed a sheet of intermediate pad under my copy paper to serve as guidelines.
- Over all, I am quite pleased with this week’s practice. No stiffness from my writing arm, no difficulty handling the brush (I think I found the right water brush nib to practice with, though I still have one other brush to try :-)), and only slight difficulty with controlling the upper thin strokes.
Next week I will be posting more than seven words as it will be the final week for #togetherweletter. But I plan to continue on dedicating my Wednesdays for brush lettering practice. I think I will put on my big girl’s shoes and try writing longer words.
