JGR March letters

Hi everyone - here are my letters for March. To review my approach: I must work with my first attempt, no starting over. This is a great lesson for me in becoming more spontaneous with my work. 'I' is black acrylic 'painted' straight from the tube instead of using a brush. 'J' is watercolor painted with a brush and then sprayed with alcohol. 'K' is black sharpie with dry brush watercolor paint (see bottom right corner for brush marks) colored pencil accents on top. 'L' is water soluble pencils with drips of water to create texture. I am using slightly different techniques for each letter, it's a good learning exercise. Thank you for viewing!

Love the J. It almost looks like a butteryfly

What a visually appealing grouping! I love the 'I' and the '' definitely doesn't look like its a left handed one -very elegant. You look like you are enjoying the experimenting!

I like the way you presented your letters and the subtle signature. "K" is my favorite, then the "I".

And Jane of course I love the rusted look - like how the J bled. B
