Daily calligraphy practice: layers of letters, words and paint.

I start off with layers of acrylic paint and paste, layered and sanded multiple times.
This creates a smooth surface that has a sense of depth and subtle blended variations of color.
On top of that, I layer letters and words in watercolor.
In this practice session, I was working with a folded pen, practicing an upright italic variation.
