Watercolour letters

Hi everyone, I wanted to start my project and show where I have got to so far.

The quote I am going for (my own quote) is "The future is going to be awesome". A little cheesy i know! but I wanted something that I could pin up and see regularly that would make me feel positive and enlightened.

I have just started painting the lower case letters and done about half of them so far. Im really enjoying the process and just having fun! Thank you Amarilys for a great class!

So to start with I went to www.fontsquirrel.com to find a free font I could use, and one that I liked. I decided on the one below called 'Black Jack'. 


I printed the font out and then traced onto watercolour paper before making a start with my paints.Below you can see my original watercolour letters before I used image trace on them. 


And then after image trace (below).....


The image trace has lost a little of the colours used and the vibrancy, so I will hopefully tweak this later.

That as far as I have got at the moment. I need to finish the rest of the letters and then paint my capitals that I need.I shall post more as/when I have done it. Thanks for looking!
