I've fallen a bit behind in my lettering course. I struggled with a couple of the tasks and others I have just simply chosen to take my time with. The beauty of this course is that it's open forever for me, so I can take all the time I need and even go back for a refresher lesson if I choose to.
I spent a couple of days working on this one. The task was to choose a quote, set out the lettering, then use water colour for the background. I always believed I wasn't very good with water colour paint. I have tubes of water colour paint and I've always just made a terrible mess with them. The other night I had an epiphany! Use pan watercolours instead! So the next day I bought myself some pan watercolours and set to work. Success! They are so much easier to use! I was quite pleased with my efforts for this project.
