Watercolor Ampersand

Some fresh watercolor pieces that will be incorporated into some new designs. I love black watercolor. And you just can’t go wrong with an ampersand. It’s such a lovely shape and there are so many fun variations on this “letter”. Speaking of that, what’s your vote — should the ampersand be considered a letter or not?

I’ve cleaned this photo up a touch, but not much editing has been done in order to preserve that awesome watercolor texture. If you’re curious about the materials I used scroll to the bottom for the deets.
