My workshop on embossing approaches fast, time for me to review the basics.
I’m also doing some researches on knotworks based on triangle patterns and not on the regular square ones. The result is this little knotwork embossed on watercolor paper.

As we are talking about embossing, here is a small ampersand, done a few weeks ago.
Unlike the regular embossings where the embossed parts are smoother than the others, here I added some texture to the embossing.

This sentence is not by me but by Kierkegaard. I always find it difficult to calligraphy a single short sentence, composition options are too reduced unless one launches into excessive ornementation.
Other thought that has nothing to do with the previous statement, I’m fascinated by zebra crossing textures for a while now.
The conjunction of these two observations gave me the idea of working on Kierkegaard’s sentence using the morse code and playing with the texture of dash and points.

It’s a first draft, I already identified some of its weaknesses and hope to correct them into the next version, anyway, I’m quite happy with some of the textures obtained.
