calligraphy practice

I found using the nib pen and ink super messy for me. I used the tool for a few days to practice the strokes, but it didn't feel right. It got blobby in spots.

I'm going to have to investigate the nib situation (UPDATE: I was using the wrong nib!). For now I've started using a felt tip touch pen. Practicing the down thick/up thin weight of the strokes helped me find a rhythm.

I've got a ways to go until I feel confident working in this style, but I feel like i've got a grip on the basics.

I FINALLY got the right nib and it makes all the difference!
