There are a number of words that are really fun to letter, and “celebrate” is one of them. With the New Year approaching, I thought this word would be appropriate for this week.
I wanted to paint with an uplifting, celebratory colour palette so I did my own version of ‘rainbow’ colours, adding in a few custom shades using my Kelly Creates Watercolor Inks. The lighter green is a combination of Deep Yellow and Emerald watercolor inks, and the purply pink at the end of the words is a combination of Rose and Blue inks.
I used the usual size 2 Kelly Creates lettering brush with the palette to hold the inks and painted on Canson 140 lb cold pressed watercolor paper.
I highly recommend my workbooks and watercolor lettering supplies to help you learn, and my book The Art of Watercolor Lettering will make a BIG difference in improving your skills.
