The Art of Brush Calligraphy
Updated: Jun 4
In simple terms Brush Calligraphy is calligraphy with a brush.Yeah! I know that was pretty vague but we will slowly build up on it. People prefer using brush pens as the colors are pre-loaded and they can carry them without hassle. (Note: you can even use normal brushes and mediums like inks, watercolors etc.)
The art is easy to learn, but what really impacts the lettering is how one develops their own style.
Basic rules that one needs to pay attention to are the thick and thin lines, the upstrokes and downstrokes.
Let's talk about material. All one needs to start off is brush pens and a paper. Make sure that your paper is smooth, bleed proof and non-absorbent.
In this image, you can see that I have flourished the lettering. Don't panic if you don't get it in the first try, practice makes perfect.
Again, What makes the lettering special is how one develops it and whether one uses effects or not.
An example for an effect is the Dual Tone effect. You can create this by using two colors.
Why don't you try it out !
