Day 3 - 2022: BAT
« on: October 03, 2022, 01:01:12 AM »
I like getting an early shot at these.  Mainly because I'm irrepressibly compulsive about having consistency in our subject naming conventions.

Played with a couple of different style B's for the bat.

Well, I ended up tending to a sick kid tonight. It's midnight already and I can't afford to lose more sleep.
I would scribble something, but then getting a pic that fits the forum's size requirements takes a lot of time.

So,

                                                            BAT

I guess ^^

See you tomorrow  :P
Oh crpe!

I hope your kiddo is feeling better soon, @Lucie Y - and that you get your rest too.

@AnasaziWrites - I am really impressed by your commitment to retro advertisements!  (I guess I'm the one that recreated the Bain de Soleil ad last year though).

@Zivio - your sandwriting really makes me smile.  I'm a California native, a long way from the beach, and I miss the ocean.  Thank you for the pleasure of your beautiful Spencerian!

And thank you for your kind thoughts, @tiffany.c.a - that Prussian blue looks great on your delicate flourish.  Like a Delft porcelain!

I struggled with the letter combinations in the copperplate for today.  And I'm very tired.  So I gave myself an easy out with a monochrome wash drawing.  The ink is "Seize the Night" from Diamine's 2021 Inkvent red collection - topical name for it too! - one of my very favorites from that collection.  I bought a big bottle of it.

Yall are great.
LucieY, hope all will be well.
I continue to work on my exchange list, writing a few letters today. Flourishes and envelopes for another day
Im trying the ink that some calligraphers like where you mix Higgins Eternal with orange sumi. Its working pretty well.

Oh, I remember. Hubba hubba.

Love the translucent bat wings.

@AnasaziWrites  Too obscure?  No!  Just so clever!  Love it.  ;)

@Lucie Y Most definitely made me laugh!  Not the sick kid, but youve definitely caught on to the humorous edge of Inktober.  Loved the image resizing.  ;D 

@K-2  The soaring fruit bat is glorious! Last year, I sent many of your images to my art gallery docent sister who really admired your work. This one, too, is going her way. 

@tiffany.c.a  Thanks for updating us on your progress!  Ive only been using the one ink that has at all worked for me and just havent taken time out from writing practice to experiment with others. Youre making me rethink this

Just to be complete, Id forgotten to post this other capital B version on paper. Also goes to showing what practice of multiple attempts looks like for me.

Thank you for posting, I love seeing other people's practice sheets!
I'm really enjoying your Spencerian capitals unfold.
