Sandra's first letters


I have chosen ‘Braggadocio Regular’ as my font, I like it because of it’s bulk, which gave me the facility
to use my own paintings with each letter.   I made stencils from each letter, then cut the finished ones out with a sharp Stanley knife.....what a fiddle that was,  I now have to think about how the finished item will come together....a few ideas swimming around.   The letters are not perfect....maybe by the time I get to Z they could be ????

  1. I love the choice of typeface, as it can show so much of your painting. Delightful.

  2. Stunning Sandra! Isn't that font so perfect for what you want to achieve? They look warm and bold and gorgeous.

  3. I'm thinking that they would look very, very good blown up to a larger scale and hung in my living room.

  6. I think Scarlet and I may have to negotiate over this!

  7. These are just lovely - both the paintings themselves and the way they're 'framed' by the letter forms. Can hardly wait to see more!

  9. Wow! 7cm x 7cm! Even though they would be wonderful blown up and hung on a wall, I would LOVE to see the original in original size - so detailed! You mentioned how as you move on, you may want to "revisit" letters to make them "perfect". I'm with you there. Already, I've found myself thinking of letters yet to come and how they would "fit" into my idea and wondering if I might want to return and "re-do" earlier letters based on what develops! (I'm posting today, promise!).

    1. Thank you Sally,I shall continue using my own paintings as the alphabet, I am cutting up the cards I have had printed,and some of the proof copies.
      Original size of drawings & paintings vary between A 5 & A4, at the end of the first 6 months maybe I could post my original paintings....still on a steep learning curve right now, with computer and this type of creative art work, having never stepped into this arena before. I will keep trying my best.Sandra
