Calligraphy Triptych

These little gems were created using watercolor and Dr. Martin's bleedproof white ink
on Arches cold press watercolor paper.
The painted square is 3"x3" on 5"x8" paper size.  

The words are from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 and are definitely words to live by.

Italic practice

Practice from the Denis Brown dvd instructional course.
If you have not heard about this awesome opportunity to study with 
one of the most popular and well-known calligraphers of the day, please check out 
the study curriculum Denis offers in his dvd collection at http://calligraphy.tv/

I still have a long way to go, but this was a lot of fun to work on.

Digital Color Study

color samples
This is a piece that was created some time ago. The colors are quite beautiful. It was created without any plan while waiting for other things to dry, so I did not pay much attention to the process and cannot remember what I used to create the color combinations. 

I imported a picture of the piece into photoshop and color pick throughout. What a good way to come up with combinations for your digital work.
