Back – on Black

After a year and a half of battling “frozen shoulder” (a common calligrapher’s complaint?), I was recently able to fully participate in a calligraphy workshop taught by Connie Furguson-Card. The workshop was aptly named “Lettering on the Dark Side”. I’m no stranger to writing on dark colours with white ink, but I had never explored colour on black... this workshop got me moving in a new direction... thanks, Connie! Need to watch the inner shapes on my letters but it feels sooo good to get this arm warmed up!

I love the white on black. The colors on black are even cooler! Thanks for sharing!
