With all the course preparation of the last weeks (my Calligraphy Essentials course starts today and there’s still time to join if you want!!) I haven’t found time to post to the blog, but I did make new tutorial and demo videos for Youtube. Hop over and check them out, it’s a mix of calligraphy, drawing and painting videos.

Drawing physalis with pen and ink & watercolor
A little demo of my drawing and painting process. I draw physalis fruits with a flexible nib, painting color highlights with watercolor. This is how I usually work in my sketchbook every day.
The right inks for calligraphy
For all you calligraphy lovers out there! I’m showing different kinds of ink you can use for calligraphy – I talk about the differences between water and pigment-based inks, give tips for starters, and show how to use watercolor/gouache as ink.
Hope you enjoy these videos, please tell me in the comments if you do! All in all it’s great fun to make videos like this and I really enjoy getting back into filming them. If you want to see something specific, let me know, I’m willing to share my process and explain how I use my tools.
