CALLIGRAPHY PEN PLAY

“PEN PLAY” at San Diego calligraphy group was such fun!  We were given all the materials, created pen stroke calligraphic animals, practiced the NEULAND alphabet and a few other fun things.  I decorated my folder with a calligraphic lion and vintage postage stamps.  

CALLIGRAPHIC DESIGNS – CALIFORNIA BROWN PELICANS

CALLIGRAPHIC DESIGNS OF CALIFORNIA BROWN PELICANS are created from my own photographs taken in San Diego.  I enlarged the photos and used a light box to lightly trace the pelican’s rough details and then filled in the pelican with calligraphic “gestures”.  These photos were taken on my art studio table.
