What does the Watercolour Calligraphy course cover?
Module 1 : Introduction / Tools / Drills
This module is all about getting you setup for creative success. We’ll talk about mindset when it comes to embarking on new creative endeavours, why we benefit from taking time to play and create, and how to get the most out of our time together.
From there, I’ll be walking you through all of my favourite tools, brushes, paper, paints, all the things!
Lastly, we’ll be diving right into getting brush to paper. Starting with basic strokes that will become the foundation of the letters we’re going to create in the next module.
Module 2 : All the letters!
This module is where we dig deep into letter foundations.
Included is a video for each letter of the alphabet, followed by one video showing numbers 0-9. There are workbooks for both upper and lowercase letters provided.
Module 3 : Connections / Baselines / Styles
Now that we’ve covered the basics, this module is about connecting letters to form words, then laying out words in lovely ways to create beautiful pieces of art.
We’ll also look at letter variations that will begin to give you room to experiment and discover just how you like to letter.
I’ll walk you through my advice for finding your own unique style, and give you resources to help you do that.
Module 4 : Layout / Colours + Blending / Masking Fluid
In our final module we’ll cover colour theory, how to create beautiful blended effects and how to finish your work.
I’ve also included an extra video in this section showing you how to use masking fluid to create inverse effects, with beautiful watercolour backgrounds.
How do I get access to the Watercolour Calligraphy course?
Inside your box is a code that you’ll need to use to get access to the course. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll have immediate access to four modules with videos and downloadable worksheets. I recommend practicing watercolour calligraphy on blank paper, with the worksheets used either on screen, or printed out, as a guide.
Why learn with me?
Hi! I’m Liss.
In case we haven’t met before, I’m a mum to six amazing humans, and am obsessed with making beautiful things while also encouraging others to do so too. I have been obsessed with letters, and making them beautiful, for a very long time, collecting fonts instead of shoes, and making typographic posters for fun in my spare time.
In 2014 I started hand-lettering, first with a brush and ink, then investing in an extensive collection of brush pens. #buyallthepens. Over time I found my groove, which inks I loved, and which I would only use under duress, which pens travelled everywhere with me, and which only got pulled out occasionally.
I was one of the first calligraphers on Instagram to share watercolour brush lettering and my experiments with liquid watercolours and water brushes filled with ink and dipped into other colours to create beautiful gradients.
If you already follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that these days I work with my iPad a lot, but there is something incredibly beautiful about watercolours with a brush that keeps drawing me back.
In this four week program, I’m going to walk you through all the basics, from the tools I love, to exploring colour and strokes. From there we’ll cover letter formation, connections, layouts and beautiful blending effects. By the time we finish, you’ll feel confident with a brush in your hand, and be well on your way to creating your own beautiful style.
