Hello from the West country in England, just for a change it's raining.

I have been involved in calligraphy for many years, and probably like most, never being satisfied with what I achieve.

I started Copperplate some 3 years ago and love it.
It is without doubt the most enjoyable of all the scripts I have tried to master.
Interestingly I really believe it has helped me to improve my broad edge pen skills.

I have joined the forum with a view to gaining inspiration which in my case is sadly lacking.

Welcome to the forum, Martin!  I think a lot of us can relate to a lack of satisfaction in what we achieve, but we're also working in a medium that has arguably very strict considerations for "proper" execution.  It's always a bit easier to see our errors with each piece, but it takes a longer period to see improvement.

Regardless, you'll find a lot of support here, in whatever style you're inclined!  Everyone is quite positive and super helpful.   :)
