Noela's letters

Week 7
I am torn between being spontaneous and being neat. My spontaneous 'calligraphic' marks are heavy and ugly and my neat 'calligraphic' marks are contrived and stilted. This week, I have again gone over my letters and even filled in background mistakes with yellow ochre gouache, in an attempt to make them neat. Next week will be messy again.

I think these letters are looking great Noela - they really don't appear stilted!

Thanks Fiona, it's hard to be objective when you have overworked something so many times! xoxo
