Today’s session was spent making little triangles! I found a video on YouTube (below) and decided that it was as good a place to start as any.
My triangles are variable, but I did feel like I was making some progress. Some triangles were easier than others, and it’s clear that it requires a lot of brush control to make nice shapes. As I’m left-handed, I’m working from right to left.
This definitely feels like I’m learning cuneiform rather than calligraphy, but we all have to start somewhere! I really only got through the first two minutes of the lesson, so will continue with more triangles, and hopefully lines, tomorrow.
