Calligraphy: Today is Your Day to Shine

My sunflowers - happy Sunday! 

This is my first week of testing out gouache paint as ink. (Gouache is just a fancy word for paint that is highly pigmented, and finishes as a very opaque color.) I've read from a couple bloggers that the perfect mixture of gouache & water creates a full palette of ink colors. 

Shine on, you crazy diamonds. And have a beautiful week!
