I bought a step-by-step book a few months ago but without supplies to start...smart I am. The other week I finally ordered what I needed (not too many things actually), received them and finally started reading and practicing.
|Those little thangs are "nibs"...never knew|
Of course, I am lazy and have not taken the time to draw out the guidelines you are supposed to use to practice but I'll get around to it. In the mean time, I plan to practice my way and hopefully find my own style...a mix between the classic and the uniquely modern.
I was expecting to feel frustrated while practicing but in reality it is very soothing and almost relaxing. You can hear the metal nib dragging across the paper and watch the black ink slowly spill out onto the plain white surface and it clears my mind for a little while.
I shall continue! And keep you posted on my progress...if progress happens! :)
