Shelter of Peace Papercut

The central part of this calligraphic work features a cut out Magen David image which appears to float over a sky blue watercolor wash.   This effect is produced by mounting the lettered art on a ring of matboard that elevates it above the painted background.

The colored letters are created by adding drops of changing color to the pen nib before it runs dry.   adding color by brush to the pen nib instead of  dipping the pen into color both helps to control the amount of paint laid down and allows the colors to blend in the pen as they are applied to the paper!
