By themselves, lettering and watercoloring are two very lovely art forms. But put them together and you have a dynamite combination that will create some truly stellar pieces.
In this class, I’ll be sharing how you can harness this skill to make some lovely lettering. First, I’ll run through a quick lettering refresher before touching on basic color theory. Then I’ll demonstrate how to control water and pigment to achieve different effects before jumping into showing you two very different lettering styles.
Finally, we’ll create three gorgeous lettering projects together, starting with a simple project and working our way to lettering with all the colors of the rainbow. By the time the course is over, you’ll have the skills to create a huge array of colors, forms, and styles that will leave you feeling like a lettering champ.
If you already are familiar with watercolors, you’ll know how water control can greatly affect your painting experience and final result. That is no different with watercolor lettering! In this lesson, I’ll explain how water control affects the lettering process, how to add or remove water from your brush, and how to practice exercising this control.
No Risk No Fun – Project #1
This project is a simple jump into watercolor lettering using both of the styles we talked about.
To create this design, I used Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Liquid Watercolors and a no 7 flat brush and a medium round water brush pen.
