First Brush Project with Gouache!
« on: July 03, 2014, 02:06:28 PM »
This will be my first project on Brush Calligraphy and I'm loving it. I like how
my freehand looks like. Although I used Gouache here, it didn't seem to be one 😊
I will probably do this more often

Thank You Linda. 😃😀 I'm afraid I might switch to brush calligraphy
more often rather than doing proper copperplate calligraphy 😣☺️😅

These look so great! Your color choices are on point. I especially love the 2nd color combo with the green type and the peachy tangerine.

It's definitely more fun and less rules to follow  ;)

Thanks Alexiz! That one is my favorite too.

Very nice Jamie! and very good consistency of the thin lines (not wobbly either!)... something pretty difficult with a brush from my experience ...

Thank You for your kind observations Mr. Christo :)) Some of the parts are wobbly tho  :-[ See that exit wave part of the letter "t" ? I didn't control the brush that why its kinda fuzzy . hehehe
