A friend of mine recently welcomed a little baby nephew. This weekend I got to meet the little guy and decided to paint something for him. His room theme is ocean so I figured an anchor was fitting (they also happen to be one of my favourite things to draw). I wanted to share with you a bit of the process.
The first thing I did was find a picture of an anchor on google that I liked using my iPad. Once I found one I quickly traced it out. Then I take the time to fix it up until I like the over all shape.
Then with my iPad I use a light box app to trace the anchor using my brush pen markers.
Once that was done I used my aquash water pen to fill in the banner where i would be putting his name.
Once the water colour was dry I picked a font for his name and wrote it in with a brush pen.
Eh voila! A little anchor for a little man.
Calligraphy, word art, pressing brush to paper and creating a beautiful piece of art. Something I have always loved, something I have always been told I was good at but something I always wanted to be better at. If you read the blog fairly consistently you know that I started my calligraphy journey a few months ago and I like to think that I have come a long way. I spend a lot of my free time watching youtube and instagram videos about techniques. and I wanted to share some of my work with you.
I have also decided to start a small business, nothing big or profitable but something I enjoy doing and something I want to share with people.
