Brush lettering practice
There may be nothing extra satisfying for me to do recently than training my brush lettering on a regular basis. I’ve been posting pictures of what I’ve finished on my Instagram (Azlina Abdul) each different day from late final 12 months until now. The pictures above are pictures of brush lettering practices that I’ve posted there and I needed to share them with everybody right here too.
For me brush lettering is just not one thing that’s straightforward for me to do however by some means doing it makes me really feel so relaxed and at peace. I want to make use of watercolour as my medium to apply brush lettering however I additionally like to discover different mediums like inks of assorted varieties.
I’d begin by selecting a sentiment that I really like and apply writing it with any brush software I like…..and can maintain writing and writing until my hand is sore. I will not surrender till I’m really glad with the result. Normally after I begin, it would not all the time look as good because the pictures you see right here. It might take some time earlier than it seems okay for me to put up them on-line. A whole lot of papers wasted within the course of, consider you me. However it’s mandatory as a way to get the cling of it.
There are loads of types relating to brush lettering and in the intervening time I appear to be good with my very own fashion. Haha! Only one. One which I’m comfy with. It is near my very own handwriting. The one distinction is the letter “R”. I often write my R differently, however now I am training it the way in which it is imagined to be written. There are such a lot of types of writing the letter R in calligraphy, particularly should you write it utilizing a distinct software. For now I am simply gonna apply with brushes……maybe in future I will use calligraphy pens too. These are tremendous fascinating to attempt! 🙂
As for brushes…..I must say that the water brush is solely a beautiful software for brush lettering. I simply want they make them smaller in dimension, then I’d be capable of write smaller writings on paper for my handmade playing cards. For now I solely use these watercolour brushes for small lettering. The impact it offers is in fact totally different with totally different instruments used. So I simply should know which works out effectively for which mission I am making.
