The goal is to do 1 Romanesque letter every 2 to 3 weeks till I have a full alphabet. Here’s the letter “K” in a two different forms.
These two were finished letters I used on actual envelopes. For the blue on black I followed the instructions in this last issue of Bound and Lettered. By adding a 2 drops of Dr Martins Bleed Proof White to a the blue gouache it came out much more opaque and doesn’t smudge.
Below is a two different practice pieces I was working on, first in water color then in gouache.
You can find all sorts of Romanesque letters in digital scriptorium by searching by the time period.
