My plan this time is to learn calligraphy techniques. I will try out something each day, whether it is a letter, a word, or progress on a larger project. I will start with formal calligraphy, though not getting too hung up on measurements & exactness. I plan to work towards more free form lettering and mixed media projects using the formal calligraphy as a basis.


Day 4 round hand, lower case

Starting on round hand, or traditional hand. This was developed by Edward Johnston, based on a 10th century manuscript in the British Library, London. I am working from a book "The Calligrapher's Project Book" by Susanne Haines. Still using the 4mm Artline Pen, also now a 2.4mm Osmiroid Calligraphy pen for the smaller writing. I would use ink dip pens but we are in the middle of moving everything in the house around & I haven't located them yet.
