Yves Leterme "Drawn Caps for Careful Control Freaks" June 8 & 9, 2013 Page 2


Created: June 10, 2013


In the morning I wanted to do a piece on black paper (Artagin) with white ink (Copic Opaque White mixed with H2) and a speedball C5 nib

Under it I added some Prisma colored pencils.


More squeezing and stretching. Yves liked the top piece, but said the bottom one - the tilts were too exaggerated. Still using a pencil.




Now we stretched, & squeezed and worked either with a slope creating a star burst type effect and making sure our baseline and top line weren't running parallel.

PS the word is : gymnasium


I continued to play on my black paper, this time with Art Quest Interference Mica Color Palette using the Gold for the top word and Duo Green/Yellow for the quote. Pity you can't see the gorgeous colors.

PS - Yves didn't like my "ss's" in the last portion, so he demoed what would be more acceptable.


And finally I was playing again.

I tried Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils and a water brush. (Top: Congrats)

Pelikan water paints brushed onto nib. When dry shadowed with a pencil and paper stump. (2nd Congrats)

NoBlot pencil and water again.

"Amour" done with Walnut ink and a pointed nib.

"Bloom" with a Copic Liner (first time I tried this pen and I love it). Linear Shading the letters.

I think I did this one with a #1 Mitchell italic nib and walnut ink.

"Joy & Peace" is a test for maybe my Xmas cards this year.
