Marathi / Devanagari Vowels Calligraphy in Marathi | (अ ते अ: अक्षरे) मराठीतून शिका कॅलिग्राफी

Hello everyone! This is Chaitanya Gokhale Welcome to my YouTube Channel If you haven’t subscribed to my channel, please subscribe In the previous video We understood the proportions, letter height as well as the basic strokes that make up the letters by using a marker We shall now learn all the letters by using a calligraphy pen. We’ve seen how the marker does not have sharp edges required for lettering or calligraphy As compared to that, the calligraphy pen gives us a brilliant sharpness. Let me give you the basics of how to start calligraphy with a pen. Various brands of calligraphy pens are available that may contain specific Devanagari nibs Devanagari nibs have 5 different sizes I already have a detailed review video about how to use nibs and the pen . Here I’ll be explaining it in brief Once you insert the nib in the pen, you simply have to dip the nib in the ink. You don’t need to fill ink into the barrel You may use Camlin or Parker ink In the beggining, your nib won’t run too smoothly on paper In that case, rub it softly on paper at an angle of 45 degrees Pens or nibs aren’t faulty, it’s just that we’re used to writing with a single tip whereas the calligraphy pen has a thick nib . Therefore, we just need a little bit of practice to make the ink spread consistently With some initial practice, the pen will run in a perfectly smooth way. Not every nib will be smooth right from the beginning but with just a little practice, you’re sure to get things right. However, while using a callligraphy pen, do make sure to keep the pressure consistent. Because if you tilt the nib and apply pressure, the nib may get damaged As seen in the previous video, the height of our letter measures 5 parts of the nib width so according to this nib, our letter height would be 1 centimeter We saw how to write “a” in the previous video Now we’re going to learn the entire series of vowels Hold the pen at an angle of 45 degrees Keep it constant. That was my 1st stroke 2nd stroke We should make sure that the letter fits into 5 blocks Here’s the straight line And the line on top I’ll show you once again First stroke. You don’t have to overlap the second stroke. Begin it slightly from the right Third stroke Fourth and fifth strokes. That makes “a” Adding a straight line to it, we get “aa”. “i” is slightly difficult due to curves It’s acceptable if the height of “i” exceeds 5 parts Pay close attention to the negative spaces in this letter That’s the longer one : “i:”. We usually write “u” like this But in calligraphy, it’s broken down into strokes First stroke Second stroke. We need to end the stroke where it becomes thin We’re not supposed to curve it To make “u:” ,we use the half round stroke just like we would use in “a” Now for “é”… A straight line that slants to become thin and becomes thick again. Second stroke A horizontal line above the letter Make sure to leave a small gap between the first and the second stroke to create “æ”, all you have to do is add a line on top Let me demonstrate that line again. If that’s the upper line, then we begin with a thick stroke and end in a thin stroke Both lines are over the same straight line in “au” I have demonstrated “au” first but “o” comes before that in the actual sequence That’s “o” That’s “an” and “ah”. The fullstop is a sort of diamond, as seen above. So this was the vowel series In the next video, well take a look at the consonants Thank you! 🙂
