This was the basic alphabet we worked with during a workshop/retreat at the Racine Retreat Center in Wisconsin. The workshop was held by the Cream City Calligraphers and given by Carol Palleson (to the best of my recollection.) I was a participant at this workshop. Most of the work was done using fine line ink markers or Rapidograph © pens and watercolor pencils.
This was a modified version of the alphabet I worked on during the weekend with a cleaner line and slightly longer flourishes.
Here you can see the process from the first inked sketch, the addition of outlines and inlines, the flourishes, and then watercolor pencil.
Again you can see the process from the first inked sketch, the addition of outlines and inlines, the flourishes, and then watercolor pencil. We also used monoline lettering to show either a first or last name.
These pieces were done mostly on hot press watercolor papers. The pieces were actually only about 2 to 3 inches square so we were working carefully.
Most of the time I used family initials for any of my work samples.
Occasionally I would do a piece based on a favorite student. This was someone who was in my production of Guys and Dolls.
