I've been brush lettering for awhile and I'm a watercolor beginner, so it was fun to fuse two hobbies for this class!
I used my Artist's Loft palette from Michael's. I also tried out a new brush: Royal and Langnickel's script brush in 20/0. Not sure if this was made for watercolor lettering, but I did prefer it over my regular watercolor brushes!
Warming up my lettering while watching the videos:
Then I lettered a rainbow alphabet and a pangram. I tried to apply color blending here, but my paint was too dry.
In this one, I felt more comfortable with this new lettering medium. I like how "Amethyst" turned out and the colors of "summer".
Mixed some colors to obtain these muted colors that reminded me of Asian dessert flavors!
I was excited to hear that watercolor lettering would be an easy transition from brush lettering, but it was harder than I expected! I want to work on smoother color blending and will continue uploading to my project as I letter more. :) Thanks for the class, Peggy!
I tried lettering with other brushes and preferred the round 01 brush the most. It allowed me to pick up more water, so the colors were easier to blend!
