Learn how to draw and paint elegant Versals or Roman Capitals which can be used on a card or to be framed. The underlying structure is based on the carved Inscriptional Roman capital letters of the 1st century AD. On the day we will modernize them, draw them freely and decorate them with pattern and a touch of gold. Enjoy designing your own exciting and colourful capital letters, which can be used to enhance your writing or be used just on their own. Have fun creating vibrant modern decorative letters or an initial, using a pencil, dip pen, line, colour, gold and silver, gouache and  watercolour paint.  The workshop is meant to be fun and informative!  We will look at the techniques of arriving at a good and exciting letter design, use of vibrant colour with the added attraction of gold to add a sparkle and brighten the day!
