"Variations on Romans"
To determine the various size of the letters, I first drew the
large letter A. Added the pencil caps, traced them with a
mono-line marker. The plain caps were added and retouched.
The remaining letters were completed in gouache.
I found theoriginal layout paper; it appears the letters were
enlarged or reduced - using the copier as a tool. All decisions
made, I then lined the Arches. The script capitals were written
last. Looks like I added the 'toothbrush speckling' at the end
This piece was created after my first year long class with
Reggie, over twenty years ago, in Cincinnati.
