Hi there you all¡¡¡¡

As you all know I was going to do a series of watercolour & calligraphy celtic legends .I know I had ideas for the technique to be used but I shall try that maybe later.

Im very nervous because this could mean the achievement off my dream,for this legend is one of my favourites,also green is my fave colour.

16 X 12 inches.acid free extra smooth watercolour paper .
Heres the paper stuck to the table(too skittish about buying a board).

Could take a few weeks,for I have said Im nervous about this.

The hand to be used is a mixture of cursive and blackletter(franktur,I think its called) with floritures like the ones i sent in be latest post.

Now lets let the paper get dry and pray its doesnt bucle.:thumbsup:

Right...

PAINTING HAS BEGUN¡¡¡¡¡

It will be a nice calligraphy about the poem of sir Gawain and the Green knight
in green ink and brown and with a nice watercolour bard.

Richard you need to post something so we all can see, this forum is for all to show their work and help others or give others inspiration or ideas that they would not get on their own. We would love to see how far you have gotten so far.

You have told me on several occations that I am slow on posting sometimes but you are even slower than I.:D :D

Blessed Be
