Particularly like the shading on the capital P. Nice.

@AnasaziWrites thank you for your kind words.  Ink did not like the nib nor paper.

Hi everyone! it's 2AM (on October 20th)
This morning, I had this glorious idea of minimalist cards with greetings written in French Roundhound with walnut ink and a simple gilded drawing. Well, I tried all sorts of things tonight and couldn't get anywhere close to what I wanted.

So, I practiced on "Ponytail", using gold leaf and miniatum ink.
If you have ideas or advice on what ornaments might best suit French Roundhand, please share! I think I prefer the first 2 (vines and butterflies), and the wee ornaments in general, rather than the larger ones.

@Zivio this forum is becoming an important part of my calligraphy journey too, and I am incredibly grateful @Erica McPhee. And @K-2 , I really want to thank you for getting me on the Inktober train! These past two weeks have incredibly encouraging and have given me a chance to grow in doing what I love, with awesome camaraderie too!

@AnasaziWrites so glad you brought up the Flintstones, I need to find cups like that :D

Lovely work and... trés trés  beau travaille!!! ;D
Mercy pour partagée!!!!
