Starting curly scribbles...

Just starting out with my calligraphy so lots more practice to do! 

This practice was with a Gillot 068a nib which is pretty rigid but I'm starting to get the hang of the pressure now. I've picked up a few different nibs but I'm finding it tricky to get a hold of Nikko G nibs over here in the UK-  if anyone has any alternative suggestions they'd be appreciated!  

I've been enjoying playing around with some gouache and a broader nib too- this is with the Brause 361 and feels much looser and more natural to me. 

I'm trying to work on my spacing and baseline- I definitely favour a more fluid baseline but am aiming for more consistency with spacing and letter sizing.
