Some full arm practice for Ornamental capitals
« on: February 09, 2014, 05:35:59 PM »
After doing Spencerian for about a year now, I still pretty much suck at doing ornamental caps, so last week I decided to start practicing more. Here's some "full arm" practice. Nothing too good, but very fun to do!

Hi Martin,
Wow this work looks beautiful to me!  I am waiting for Erica's exemplars before I start on the caps but I can't wait to give them a go!  You have a beautiful flowing hand!

Lovely! Nice and flowing. Hard to get that shoulder muscle trained. But worth the work! Looking really good!

Thanks, everyone! These still need a lot of work (consistent capital stems, staying on the slant, reducing size). but it's a very fun exercise, and I encourage you to try :)
