The Illuminated Letter



Another successful day was enjoyed with thirteen participants in my illuminated letter class last Friday.
I was delighted to have been invited to teach for the Art Society of Tasmania yet again
and my thanks to the committee and the students for including me in their 2014 program.


I chose this letter "D" to build for demonstration purposes as the day progressed.
At all times I express strongly the need to work on a swatch
so you can be guaranteed the behaviour of all media you are working with.
