Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello everyone! 

I've been practicing calligraphy a little bit every day now for the past week and yesterday I had a little 'breakthrough'. I'm starting to understand better how to get contrast and I can see it appearing in my writing.


Step 1: For my final piece I choose a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience". Writing this over and over will be a good reminder for me that change and learning doesn't happen instantly. I have to remind myself that everything goes in small steps and that the only important thing is to try and improve, not to strive for perfection, or to expect that I will be an expert in calligraphy over night.
