Calligraphy papers

I love writing with calligraphy markers, so I thought I would show a little of my process. I take white construction paper in the larger size and a black zig calligraphy marker and write and doodle mostly favorite words and shapes that just flow from the pen.

I do a light acrylic wash of color over the letters, it clouds them a little. Then I take a black Sharpie and sharpen the lines of the words. I embellish the shapes and spaces around them with colored pencils.

These are really beautiful. I usually just get to the black and white stage and never make them so colorful. I need to give that a try
