I am done with the visual sharing portion of posting my practice from Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy: A Step-by-Step Manual by Eleanor Winters. I will share any interesting tips I wish to highlight from the remaining chapters 5-10: 5) Changing the Size of the Letters, 6) Writing in Color, 7) Using Good Paper, 8) Writing Out a Page, 9) Commercial Calligraphy and 10) Retouching, Correcting and Cropping.
This week I am moving on to the next book from my selves, Lettering in the Whimsical Woodlands: A Creative Calligraphy Adventure: Nature-Inspired Projects, Prompts, and Drawing Ideas by Peggy Dean. I am using a Tombow Fudenosuke hard tip brush pen, and starting in the first section with letter shapes.
I like the statement, "Lettering is not writing; it's drawing". It is a fact to me. It sets the stage for me to continue practice with the intention of incorporating way more illustrations and finding my own style.
