Creativity takes courage

I’ve been taking another excellent Skillshare class – one of three I’ve done by Alice Young, a calligrapher from Canada. In this latest one, she teaches a slightly softer version of the gothic Blackletter style of calligraphy. I have covered acres of paper practising this bold style (and have plenty more acres to cover still).

I chose a quote by Henri Matisse as my lettering project. Serendipitously, I’m reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s book on living creatively – Big Magic. Recommended reading.
