Intermediate Western Calligraphy Tips : Calligraphy & Versals: Part 2


Now I’m being a little sloppy I’m afraid.
So you’re just going to color in. See how I’m holding the brush straight up and down.
A lot more control that way. You might want to do this. Nice upright. An upright letter
carries a certain message of dignity and grandeur ok. So now I want to show you something which
is that you’re going to choose the look of the versal ok. And you are going to choose
how it’s going to fit into the space where it’s going to go. So this is just a rough
sketch of a resolution that I had to do and I was playing around with the idea of making
a big dramatic R. And I think I did end up on this final resolution doing that, but hint,
hint. Yes this is how it works when you are doing a resolution or a document of some kind,
we will talk about it later too, you do have to pretty much rough it out to this extent.
Because what you don’t want to end up doing on a very important manuscript piece, is you
don’t want to end up improvising and guessing unless you really, really tuned in. So let’s
say that we’re going to work with the idea of the R.
