C4. Watercolor Techniques for Calligraphers


C4. Watercolor Techniques for Calligraphers -- Book List

Annie will take part in the book signing session/social on Wednesday evening.

Recommended books:
B2598. Watercolorist's Essential Notebook by Gordon MacKenzie. $24.95
B2855. Creating Textures in Watercolor by Cathy Johnson. New Edition. $24.95

For calligraphers who need help with design, Annie recommends two books. (Many calligraphers have come to this field via verbal rather than visual routes and may have had little or no design training.)
B2346. Design Language, Interpretive Edition by Tim McCreight. $22.50
B2856. DESIGN! A Lively Guide to Design Basics for Artists and Craftspeople by Steve Aimone. $14.95. Annie: "I love Steve Aimone's Design book."

These are classics that help newer artists learn to understand what visual communication is about. Great for calligraphers who don't come from an art background.
B2313. Art and Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland. $12.95
B2857. The Shape of Content by Ben Shahn. $16.00
B1772. Free Play by Stephen Nachmanovitch. $12.95

PS47. Arches WC HP 140LB 22x30
Arches Watercolor
Hot Press 140lb. 300gsm. 22"x30".

Superior quality, 100% rag, for pen and all techniques with opaque and transparent watercolor. Long used by calligraphers. HP (Hot press) finish is a very smooth sheet that will give a sharp smooth edge to your letters. Cold press watercolor paper can be used for calligraphy, but the letters won't be as crisp. You will see the cold press texture in your lettering. This has always been one of our most popular sheets.

Grain runs parallel to the underlined dimension.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)
