Julian Waters Blackletter
November 2 & 3, 2015

Created: November 5, 2015

I recently took a class with Julian Waters "Blackletter Variations".  





Creating thick bold letters overlapping or touching the previous letters to create density.

Another side trip this time using my 6.0mm Parallel pen filled with Sumi ink & H2 on Terra Skin paper, dipping the pen into QoR diluted purple watercolor with Schminke gold powder. Love the effect it gave...


This time I used an empty 6.0mm Parallel pen dipping it into a diluted purple QoR watercolor with the Schminke gold powder on the Tea Skin paper. I absolutely love this paper for writing on - the pen just glides...


A little practice... on Genoa Bond paper and Parallel pen/Sumi ink.


I was playing with my Molotow pen which was a little dry giving me these fabulous streaks. This is the 3rd take, this time only doing the vowels with the Molotow and adding the rest of the letters within. I want to do a good piece of this idea in the near future...


And for a treat - a word Julian wrote on Terra Skin using my Parallel pen. Just gorgeous...
