Catching up with a few pages of daily lettering

I've been negligent here on my blog -- has it really been two months? to the day! -- but I've been working pretty steadily in my studio. Here are a few pages of daily lettering, mostly delving into gothicized italic and uncial letter forms.

May 24 - After mixing color to match a colored background, I just kept going because I was having so much fun.
May 25 - A first approach to uncial, which I had not studied in years. Just trying to remember the feel of uncials: round, short, fruity (okay, that's some weird kinaesthesia going on).
May 27 - Getting a little more specific by studying a handout received from Sheila Waters c. 1986.
May 30 - The same uncials, but taking it down in size.
