A Letter a Week (ALaW) 26

Ahhh...that's the satisfied sound af an artist finishing their first alphabet and on time!  For my last letter I chose to write on leather. We have a stash here for book making and covers but I'd never really written on it.  I had a few practices with acrylic ink and metallic ink and wasn't too thrilled, so as a last resort picked up the trusty old black Japanese ink and off we went. It went on beautifully with a mapping pen dipping, and it also seemed to stay.

I filled in the background to make it  bit more interesting as well. Shame about the wobble on the outer down stroke...
