Week #9
This work was done by Loren Deveau in Boston in 2017 for the session “Carolingian snd Variations” in 26 Seeds: a Year to Grow. In her own words:
12x17, on Arches with # 3 Mitchell’s nib and ruling pen
Moon Palace Sumi ink and Gouache
Carolingian “wide bodied” variation
This is a homework assignment for session 4 of Reggie’s 26 Seeds: A Year to Grow class. And it surely has been a year to grow for me! In this assignment we were tasked with using a short quote to display three different Carolingian variations. Trial and error helped me achieve a more successful outcome. The final piece was actually my third rendition.
 Even in my third and final attempt, it was a mistake with my ruling pen that forced me to make the red line around the quote thicker. I was frustrated at first, but I ended up enjoying the bold red color impact more than a thinner, cleaner line. I often seem to stumble into some design solutions because of mistakes. This quote is particularly meaningful to me personally too, which is always a key ingredient to how my art turns out.
