For a while now, I’ve been on a kick to spend time learning calligraphy or mostly how to use a quill. I spent sometime this weekend playing around and practicing. Mostly writing lines from Parks and Rec because it was playing in the background! And I’m loving it. As you can see it’s still not perfect. The biggest problem I’m having, which I think effects the smoothness of the letterforms is keeping ink in my nib. I’m constantly having to refill, sometimes I can’t even finish a word.
To all the calligraphy pros out there, what am I doing wrong?
