JGR-May Letters

This time I was determined to be very neat and precise (ha!) as my other letters have been left-handed and somewhat 'scribbled'.  I used Photoshop and my concept was to be very 'clean' and modern. This is not my usual approach as I am rather addicted to spontaneous texture. I started with Q - very clean with the small text in the background: Words that begin with 'Q' - quadrangle and so on. R is similar with a smaller 'R' repeated for interest at the bottom. S made me think of my dh (Stewart) and then an inventory of family members whose first initial is "S". They are arranged in the order in which they came into my life so my older ds is first. Of course: my 'clean' approach fell apart here and I did try but could not resist some painted texture, which carried on to the last letter, T and of course my first thought was 'tenderhearted' so I added that in the background. I am really enjoying this challenge, everyone has such wonderful unique pieces. Thank you for viewing!

The colors in the T are especially scrumptious

Wow - this is a real change of direction! I like the details inside the 'Q' and the 'R' and the washes in the background of the 'S' and the 'T'. It's looking like a very elegant alphabet. Fiona
