Monoline Multiline – Caps, color and composition
There is a fascinating world behind a simple monoline executed with a pencil that not only makes us train our pulse and learn the structures of the signs, but also allows us to play with the rhythm, the color and the composition.
In these two days we will explore the rhythmical monoline applied to capital letters through the wide and attractive world of colored pencils. We will carry out innovative exercises creating color charts with gradients and beautiful effects to apply them into the letters, giving them different shapes and interesting appearence. You can follow me or just take notes.
