Calligraphy: Brush and Dip Pen

Some Brain Dump in Brrush Calligraphy

Hello everyone!

Today I'm going to share with you some of my caligraphies. But before that, let me tell you first why I started doing calligraphy. I followed Jean @junebride from the other two platforms. I saw her work and instantly fell in love. I decided to try it using my pens, but the output was different from what I saw. I even started imagining things like writing my poems and invitation letters using a dip pen. Hah!

Newly bought ink

I was still in Iligan City at that time, and art workshops were rare. I had to travel almost three hours from my hometown (Lanao del Norte) to go to the neighboring city which is Cagayan de Oro City. One time, I saw a post on Facebook and the calligrapher replied to my comment that she will be having a workshop in Iligan City. I was ecstatic and asked her when.

Dip Pen Calligraphy

Long story short, I enrolled in a Dip Pen Calligraphy workshop. It was a one-on-one session. The mentor asked me if I do faux calligraphy and was confused with the question. That was when I learned what I was always doing in my notebook was faux calligraphy already.

I only attended one calligraphy workshop. Included in the workshop fee were the nib, nib holder, and black ink. I bought another ink and nib to practice, but until today, I find it hard to control the ink or the brush and write the words beautifully and gracefully. In other words, I need to practice more. But still, I'm happy that I was able to familiarize myself with the stroke and write some quotes.


Slow progress is still progress.

That would be all guys!

Keep safe always!
