I took a one day workshop from Nancy Culmone, who does beautiful calligraphy in color and more. She creates one of a kind, exquisite books with painted backgrounds and calligraphy. She was teaching a one day class, followed by a four day class. Wish I could have stayed for the four day class as well. She is an experienced, talented, generous teaching artist. She taught us how to transition from one color gouache paint to another using brushes to back load the color onto the pen nib. It takes a lot of patience and practice and is very meditative once you start doing it.
Above are a couple of her finished pieces.
This is one of her practice pieces that we were trying to emulate. I don't have anything to show that I did in the class, because with it only being a day, it was all practice. Hoping to finish something presentable to show here in the upcoming weeks.
Now, back to getting all my supplies and samples ready for teaching a fun soy wax batik class to members of my guild this Saturday.
