Calligraphic Clouds

If I knew more about clouds, I'd create a series of envelope styles after each one. Maybe that's a direction I should carry my work towards. After looking deeply at the beautiful Bill Lily vlopes I blogged about recently, I tried on his hat and did some calligraphic cloud formations.... here are a couple. And MAN are they fun.

It remains to be seen whether my flourishes are best done quickly or slowly. I think both are possible, but my hand wants to go fast right now - so I am honoring that.
