The basics of calligraphy
Calligraphy is the art of creating expressive and beautiful hand-written lettering. While it may look complicated, there are a few basic calligraphy strokes that anyone can master with a little practice.
The most important tool for beginners is the brush pen. Its flexible nib allows you to create both thick and thin lines with ease. As a beginner, you should practice the consistency of your letter shapes as well as the consistency of the spacing between your letters.
