Written Laughter


This final project was my first for the intermediate class.  I used black gauche, a browse nib for the body of the project and the title was written with my favorite Winsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky brush. 

Back in those days, I discovered the Pentel acrylic fountain brush but it was expensive and hard to find.  In fact, I could only get them through my art instructor and I don’t know exactly where she found them.  Now you can buy them in all c olors at Hobby Lobby for a few bucks. 

There are several in different colors in my purse and I use them for all kinds of lettering.  Peole love to see their names handwritten in calligraphy.  But I am so out of practice.
