I mentioned a couple posts ago that I'm taking a calligraphy course. I'm most definitely still learning - even just how to hold the pen properly - but I thought I'd show you a couple of my sketches, projects, and homework assignments as I go. Hopefully over the coming weeks (and months), we'll be able to see progress as I get more and more comfortable with the art. But I gotta say... so far I'm loving it! Definitely a challenge but it just looks so gosh darn lovely! At least, I can imagine it would if it weren't so shaky, blotchy, and uneven... but you get the general idea.
So here are a couple pages from my sketchbook this week.
First, some course homework - my first kick at the alphabet can and some flourishes. Definitely shaky and uneven, but still getting used to it!
And a little something-something, a trace of a sketch I did of my best gal's name on our road trip last weekend:
