This is an unused sheet of calligraphy that was originally done for the Words Create Worlds installation.
Another in the series of practice pages learning to use smaller nibs.
Here I’m using a Brause 1.5 mm broad edged nib writing foundational.
I had fun testing out watercolor masking fluid with flat brushes,
while under the influence of the 2018 Korean TV drama, Sketch,
which had really creative opening titles.
Working again with Shantideva’s Prayer,
this time in layers writing over a diluted wash of sumi ink.
This is one of a series of practice pages on graph paper using a variety of calligraphy nibs.
I’ve been spending time with a ancient Buddhist aspiration or prayer attributed to an 8th century Indian monk, Shantideva.
I’ve been spending some time just making formal letters on a page.
After many days work, the Nano Gallery installation is complete.
The Nano Gallery so far.
The wall writing is pretty close to completion.
Once that’s completed, we’ll add in some paper sculptures.
