Calligraphy at Knuston Hall

Standard

I feel really guilty that I have not posted anything for ages! I seem to have had a very busy summer, and I have just spent a week on a calligraphy course at lovely Knuston Hall in Northamptonshire. The course concentrated on Versal letterforms, from formal to modern ‘free’ versals, and filling in the letters with various patterns. These are a few of the projects I made, including ‘lace’ letters where the outline of the letter is drawn with a pointed pen and the inside decorated with fine patterns using a very small pointed pen. I tried this out with gold gouache on brown paper, but the white on black is the most effective.
