Foundation Degree in Calligraphy / week #12

Following our first venture into colour exploration, we are using 'saturation of hue' to evaluate colour percentages in an image. As if that weren't a difficult enough task for a duffer like me to grasp, there is no 'image' but we have to apply these theoretical gymnastics to a piece of prose!

This is challenging in the extreme to me... but amazingly I come up with something that I am mildly pleased with, and more importantly, seems to please my tutor. From here we will be going to The Victoria & Albert Museum to repeat this process with an actual picture... this is what is commonly known as 'taking it to a whole other level'.


  1. Sounds intriguing. I'd love to read the piece of prose you submitted. Those colour squares (last pic) are beautiful. Hope they'll be gracing your wall.

  2. Thanks for your comment Allid. I'll try and dig out the piece we were given to respond to.
