World Watercolor Month in Lombardy (kind of ) font

Are you looking for:

My watercolor mentor and teacher, Kathy Delumpa Allegri (see her website here), recently moved to Arizona but members of her classes still get together once a month to paint. Each month, someone volunteers to share an idea or technique.

This month, our volunteer, Val Holiday, brought examples of a faux calligraphy technique for us to try, using a Lombardy calligraphy font and illustrations.

I hadn’t really thought of a word, and decided I’d use the opportunity to remind people that it is World Watercolor Month! (and be sure to visit Doodlewash, the home of WWM, on Saturday, because I have a tutorial on using QoR Iridescent paints that will be posted).

The YouTangle paper is excellent for pen and ink. It isn’t really formulated for watercolor, but handles it well enough if you don’t let it get too wet.

Lots of fun!

Wanna buy some of these cool toys now?

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
