Two in a Row

I did manage to get my initial B completed! Once again this is fashioned in the style of Alberto Sangorski. I think I have used more blue than I ever have before. Usually I avoid the colour but I really like Holbein's Horizon blue and I mixed it with French Ultramarine Blue and Payne's Grey.The pinks were mixed with Rose Dore, Shell Pink and Alizarin Crimson. I am learning a lot with the is project. I also tried the lining work with a Dynasty 15/0 bent liner brush. Finished size is 3 3/4 x 2 1/8" on Arches 140 lb. HP paper.

Nice. The inside of the B almost looks Reniassance (you know, realistic flowers and leaves on a plain background). And I never knew there were oblique brushes!

So Heather-ly. What amazing details in this gorgeous letter.

You outdid yourself again!

I hope to post mine Saturday or Sunday.
