I framed my new calligraphy piece, the lyrics to Lean on Me today. I like the way it turned out so I hung it in my studio near my computer. Under it in the small wooden frame is a piece by a calligraphy friend, Heather Lee - it was her birthday card to me last November. The Uncial lettering must be done with Turner's gouache because it looks like velvet.
My April 19th post shows the Lean on Me piece almost finished. The lettering is pressurized Roman in pencil on gesso and watercolor on watercolor paper. Below is a detail shot. I went over the lettering more than once to get it dark enough, and spray-fixed.
