B4287. Watercolor Lettering / Park
B4287. Watercolor Lettering: A Step-by-Step Workbook for Painting Embellished Scripts and Beautiful Art by Jess Park. 2018. 128pp. 7.5"x9.25". Paper.

This book combines instruction in using brush and watercolor for illustrative elements (mostly flowers, fruits, and other plant life) and for pointed brush scripts. Four quality alphabets are presented: a traditional Copperplate script and three versions of Modern Calligraphy, each more informal and bouncy than the previous. All use fine-tipped brushes. While the book is oriented to using an artist’s brush and color, brush markers could be used instead.
