Kind Critique / words

Did some practice with the words.  I used gold ink because I was tired of the black and because...why not?? 

Thanks for all the great tutorials, Erica!

Kind Critique / Basic Strokes
« on: November 19, 2013, 10:05:40 PM »
Worked on some of the strokes form Erica's (awesome) tutorial today.  Aside from the fact that there is a ton on ink bleeding going on (darn you, Higgins!!), I'd love to hear your thoughts.  How is the consistency?  What strokes should I continue to practice? I used the Hiro 41 on laser printer paper, on a light box with the guideline sheet underneath. 

Any and all critique welcome :)



Introductions / Hi there!

Hi all!

My name is Wendy and I am a total newbie.  I've always loved pretty lettering and started officially learning calligraphy about 1.5 years ago.  I took Melissa Esplin's I Still Love Calligraphy course and just fell in love.  Life, however, became difficult, with having to move my mom in with us, and I stopped practicing for about a year.  I recently picked my pen back up and attended a couple in-person classes (with Maybelle Imasa and Molly Jacques), and am back in the swing of things.  I'm not sure what I want to do with calligraphy.  I'd love to monetize it (once I'm better), but I don't know that I want to do envelopes (they seem like SUCH a pain in the arse!!!).  Maybe cards/invitations/gift-y stuff.  We'll see.  For now, I'm just enjoying the learning process :)

Thank you so much for providing this wonderful place, Erica!!
