How to Paint the pages in a book

I've been commissioned to paint a hand laying on an open book.
The lettering of the book doesn't need the details, no specific words, but it has to look like lettering.
Does anyone have experience with this.
Any suggestions on how this can be done. It must look professional and not sloppy.
Thank you for any input!

Are you painting on canvas? If the surface was smooth you might sketch the lettering with a rapidograph pen but that wouldn't be possible on canvas. Otherwise I would just dab the end of the brush on the canvas like you highlight a tree for the leaves.
