“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 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.
