Hello friends! Welcome back…unless this is first time you’ve read one of my posts, then, hey! How ya doing and most importantly welcome!!
I’ve got a new piece of hand lettering art to share with you this week. I would rather spend one lifetime with you, than face all the ages of this world alone is a quote from Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings. Tolkien’s works are filled with many a wonderful quote…although I’m pretty sure this isn’t one of them.
**I did check the books but couldn’t find it so I assume it was made up for the movies.**
Something I’m trying to improve with my hand lettering is allowing the words to flow together and get in each others space as opposed to just being in straight lines. Although I like the cleanness of using straight lines if its quite a long quote for these shorter ones letting the words nestle into one another looks way more interesting…but it takes a little practice.
I used my arteza water brush pens and a really fine paint brush to create this piece and think the uses of different fonts work together really well and thought about painting a frame of leaves and wildflowers to represent a bouquet but decided against it as its possible to have too much green in one painting.
That’s it for this week…I hope you like it! Do you have a favourite book quote? Even if its on the back of an envelope with a biro I really think everyone should have a go at hand lettering, you don’t need anything fancy just paper and pen…or pencil and can easily get brilliant results!! Next weeks post is shaping up to a little bit of woodland photography.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you’ll be back in the future and I wish you a prosperous week ahead!
ps. if it is a book quote please let me know!
