Practice: Simply Calligraphy by Judy Detrick (cont.)

I am continuing my weekly post about calligraphy books. 

I am still work my way through 'Simply Calligraphy' by Judy Detrick.  It contains straight forward, but deeply informative instructions.  I am sharing a sample of me practicing numbers using two of the easily accessible tools suggested in the book: a Parallel Pilot pen (size 1.5 mm nib) and college rule notebook paper.  

Next week I will look at flourishes.
