TG All Caps 2020

Created: July 16, 2020
Modified: July25, 2020

Tamer G Ghoniem put out a challenge on Instagram to do one Cap letter per week for the rest of 2020 (26 weeks to go...) 

I've started adhering them to a black accordion booklet. Each page is 3"x 3". The artwork is approx 2.5"sq.

 

 

"A"

Arches 90# HP watercolor paper. Ecoline inks (Deep Yellow, Carmine). Using a #4 brush, created my letter dropping in the Carmine. Sprinkled with Schminke gold powder. When dry rewrote the letter using a 3.4 Parallel pen and Sumi ink.

 

 

 

"B"

Arches 90# HP watercolor paper. Ecoline inks (Turquoise Blue, Carmine) and a #4 brush. Dropped in Schminke gold powder. Shadowed with a 5B graphite pencil and paper stump.

"C"

Arches 90# HP watercolor paper. Ecoline inks (Forest Green) using a #4 brush. With a Zebra G pointed nib and Robertson's adhesive drew in my design. Gilded with Robertson's 23Kt gold leaf.

  

 

"D"

Kurecolor markers. I chiseled the slanted edge to become a broad edge. Used Warm Gray and then the pink. Drew in my detail with a 3.8 parallel pen and Sumi ink. Added Prisma colored pencil shading.

 

 

"E"

6.0 Parallel pen and Bister inks (Yellow and Red). Dropped in Calligraphica Crystals "Golden Leaf" into wet letter. Graphite pencil shading
