WORKING VERTICALLY / WORKING LARGE: Calligraphy for walls and other vertical surfaces

Some of the most exciting commissions of my 35-year career have been wall texts: calligraphy and lettering for buildings, exhibitions, installations, and more. It is time for me to share with you all the techniques that I have developed over the years. We will look at specific projects, seeing which approaches best suited the situation. You will learn how to prepare a studio-sized panel on which to practice various techniques, including brush script (pointed and flat), built-up lettering, and stenciling. We will look at design and layout; choosing the right lettering style; and how to mark out a wall before you begin. You may be thinking, “I’ll never paint on a building!” But the techniques you learn here can be applied to any number of projects, large and small.
