Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. Amen to that :) This commission was done using black, brown and iridescent green ink. The flourishes were painted with watercolors. The paper I used was a fairly inexpensive sheet by Strathmore in Decorative-Marble Tan. The painted surface was 16x20, although the sheets come in 19x25.
The title was written with decorative Versal lettering. The body of the text was gothic/copperplate varying scripts. The finishing touch was the "antiquing" ink applied around the edges. This is my most recent project and I had fun with it :)
