My daughter asked me to create this for her room. I love including handlettering in my sketchbook, usually quick notes to myself. I also enjoy copying different font styles, mostly playing with ideas, always in my sketchbook. This is the first for me. After a hundred tries, I think I am finally happy with the outcome. It has been very difficult to get the paint just right on my brush to keep the flow. A dragonfly adds extra interest to the composition. I had a lot of fun with the project.
I'm including a link to a video of an artist I subscribe to. I love her tutorials, this might be useful to anyone exploring the concept.
Saturday is National Handwriting day. The day is celebrated on the anniversary of the birth of John Hancock. I will celebrate by practicing my penmanship, how about you?
