My January letters

I have been teaching Calligraphy for about 20 years, and consider myself
more or less a traditionalist as I like to be able to read some of the words
to understand what a piece is all about. That said I am trying to be more
adventurous in my style.

I have chosen to do one alphabet depicting images of Australia that appeal
to me and the second alphabet are lettering doodles. Both of these I can
use for my students.

Hi Valerie

Both alphabets are beautiful and so elegantly executed. It's lovely to see the freedom in your second one but the first one is also stunning.

Valerie, I am really looking forward to seeing where your Australiana alphabet is going.
A for Australia, B for Banksia - what next!! Beautiful work.
