Day 18: I have a wonderful time with capitals tonight. I could feel the result of drills and shades practice in every single stroke I made. Obviously a good training changed my habit to write slowly and shakily. Mr. Zaner wrote in his book, “The first thing to consider the shade of the form. The second thing to consider is the location of the shade. The third things to consider in the shape of the shade and where its heaviest part occurs. The ability to make what is know as a “swell” shade- a shade that increase gradually until a maximum width is obtained and then instantly begins to diminish is not acquired in a day. Almost any one can make a long, monotonously heavy shade, but only expert can make a shade short and swelling in the center. To make a short shade that swells well in the middle and tapers gradually both ways, requires a quick, responsive, flexible, elastic, up and down action.” #huyhoangdao #calligraphy #calligraphyeveryday #penmanship #ornamentalscript #handwriting #iampeth #capitals #shade #drill
