Session #6: Lowercase Letters

It's been a few days of daily practice and I thought I might go over my process. I do 3-pages + 1 index card each day. One page is just the basic strokes. One page is a combination of all the letters I'd learned so far up until that day. Then the third page would be rows of that days letters. Then ~6hrs later I do a quick index card in red ink. This is mostly a study trick, to exercise writing from recall. Hard to say if it's working, but I am more confident in my writing. 

I won't post all the pages because there's a lot. But one of the practice pages, and one of the note cards.

Two of my pages today, I'll leave out the page of component strokes, just to save space and since I did a quick row before running through the alphabet on the 2nd page. Tomorrow, I'll begin Uppercase.

Session #2: Group 2

(Rather than make a project for each session, I figured I'll just update this one to keep it all together.)

I warmed up with a review of the last session. I did try a lot more "o" to try to tame it and learn more control. But, ultimately I think it'll require a lot more practice before it'll start looking proper.

Then, a page of new letters from Group 2. That "p" gives me anxiety! It's not an easy letter at all. I also feel maybe the

Session #1: Basic Lowercase Strokes & Group 1

I did a page of the Lowercase Component Strokes and Group 1. I feel like I'm getting it, but sometimes my fingers just refuse to cooperate. starting the Y frazzled me. My ovals also feel a bit too circle at the moment as well.
