Day 10-16: September Calligraphy Challenge

This week's #HappyLetteringChallenge was a bit toned down when it comes to colors and papers used for calligraphy.
But of course, the progress is still more important which is, I think, pretty good. I'm satisfied with my pointed pen calligraphy, I somewhat tried a little flourishing on Day11, but of course, I need more improvement on this and I'm really aiming to learn the different flourishing techniques. 

However, brush lettering's the opposite. I'm really not sure what happened, but I think it has something to do with the watercolor I'm using; it doesn't inspire me anymore and I'm not getting the outcome that I've been aiming for. For the past few weeks, I've been thinking of buying a new one, which I think is about time if I'm going to expand my calligraphy skills with wreath and florals and foliage. I've been eyeing Winsor and Newton, Dr. Ph.Martin's Hydrus Fine Art Watercolor and Prima Watercolor Confections, specifically the Pastel Dreams. But I guess, for now, I'm going to settle with Prima.

Oh my, hopefully, I'll get my hands on them really soon! And while we're waiting for that day to come, please check out my Days 10-16 of #HappyLetteringChallenge.
