Size: 6"w x5"h

I was introduced to Gwen "Weaver writing" this week by Bill Kemp hosted by the Edmonton Calligraphy Society. I really like the writing but would probably make some changes eventually... Thought I would practice...

On Staples 110# white cardstock wrote out the words in various sizes with a pointed pen and Sumi ink. Prisma colored pencil accents in the smaller letters (yellow and a pink) blended with a Splendor Blender. On the larger lettes=rs added graphite shading and paper stump blending then added strokes of the yellow and pink.

Words: Laughter is the fireworks of the soul.

On Arches 90# HP watercolor paper and using a 3.0 parallel pen with Atramentis Pearlescent ink "Cyan Blue-Copper" with a touch of "Magenta Red-Gold" in Blackletter style. With a Pointed pen and Finetec "Bronze Original" shadowed the letters.

Size: 8" sq

On Arches Text Wove paper, painted with a large brush de Atrementis ink (Magenta Red/Gold). Let dry then scribed with a 6.0 Parallel pen for the main word and 3.0 Parallel pen for the rest dipping into water and blotting to lift the ink repeatedly... Shadowed with a black Zig Writer.

The image below is the one I like better but I made a goof on it - sigh. (I used the Magenta, Cyan Blue/Copper & Carnelian Red/gold). I like the vertical stripes better as well.

Words: Compassion is to listen with sincerity empathy and kindness.
