7 snow

  • Writing Tool: Pointed Pen
  • Style of writing: Script

This word is the logical suite to yesterday’s (snowman), but the writing style is nothing the same. If yesterday’s Gothic style letters are relatively easy to master, the same isn’t said for script lettering. With the oblique nib (or calame) used for the gothic letters, the thin and thick strokes are created quite naturally. With the pointed pen, obtaining thin and thick strokes is question of pressure. So, at the same time, one is concentrated on applying and releasing the pressure on the pen as well as making sure the slanted strokes are as parallel as possible. Fun and games!
