Some of Monica Dengos work from her workshop.
My books from Monica Dengo's class.  We used various tools, made our own pens similar to Cola pens, wrote with our non dominant hand, tried out different styles and tools, and then put the papers together in book form.  Some used colors but I stuck with black and white, and used watered down sumi ink for the grays.

Envelope samples.  The Mr and Mrs envelope is done in Italic style calligraphy
and the others are Copperplate (script) style.

SKETCH CLASS TODAY--- Peggy's Dad's saw horse which she added a top to it.  Unfinished so far -think it needs the dark brick behind the flowers to make them stand out.  I wasn't going to add the window in the back, but the composition needed it.

These are painted on heavy canvas and my class is next Monday!  I hope to do a few extra ones that I can letter on with a pen as I learned in Lisa Engelbrecht's workshop!
