Practice: Colour and Curves: A Pilot Parallel Pen Workbook (cont.)

I have delved into the Gentle Gothics section of Colour and Curves.  I need to get a 3.8mm Pilot Parallel pen.  I am working with the 6.0mm.  It is too thick, but I will make due until I get the smaller nib width. 

Anyway, I appreciated the brief history review of Gothic/ Blackletter as well as the brush-up on ratio.  I think ratio is my biggest challenge.  I believe mastering ratios in muscle memory and visually will take my lettering to the next level.

This week Friday, August 17 at Oil and Cotton I am teaching Intro to Calligraphy from 6:30-9p using the 2.4 mm Pilot Parallel Pen.
