Drawn and Decorated

 I'm taking a watercolor brush lettering class online with Val Webb.

The first week is into and block letters and I love it.
At left is my second attempt, that I'm 

showing you first, because I like it- what a difference a day makes and a few hours of practice.

I like that Val gives you all the tips and tricks up front. I feel she really wants to share with me what she knows, instead of keeping technique a mystery and maybe you learn by making mistakes.

I'm also enjoying sharing on a FB page just for students. Everyone learns and everyone teaches there and it's inspiring and comforting.

This is an exercise in control and  creativity that isn't quite right. I enjoy posting it just as it is so others won't be intimated!
 

This was my first altered block lettering piece. i wasn't thrilled with it, and still it was an enjoyable process and i can't wait for next weeks lesson!
