Second Alphabet 2012

 Sorry to be so late posting my second alphabet as I have been away for two and a half months!
 These letters are designed in Art Noveau style of the 1920's.  I drew the letters lightly in pencil onto hot pressed Arches paper.  I then wet the paper and dropped watercolours onto the surface, when dried I removed the pencil, leaving the letters in relief.
 The to add an interest I added a black image of a dragonfly to the letters.

Hope you enjoy my dragonflies dancing in the July letters.


  1. Valerie these letters literally dance off the square! I love the gentle background washes as well.


Thanks for taking the time to comment on our work - it's always good to hear what folk think!
