Martine's watercolour interpretation of Baskerville (hand drawn, not traced)

Rather than trace my alphabet I printed it off (font = Baskerville) and copied it. I want to improve my hand lettering so this was a challenge for myself. I drew the letters with a 2H pencil the went over them with a 2B. I then painted them using a watercolour brush. When it was dry I rubbed out the pencil lines as best I could. Some pencil lines are still visible but I think that adds to the charm of the alphabet. I did a bit of cleaning up in Photoshop then exported to Illustrator and made into grouped vectors. Really pleased with my first attempt at this.
