365 Days of Calligraphy: Month 2

Month 2 of #36dDaysofCalligraphy found me concentrating on the italic hand.

The first half of the month, I learned italic by reading manuals and testing out various techniques. However, once I started taking a class with Eleanor Winter, I found I had a better grasp of the hand and what makes it beautiful. Though it is not typically a style that I find people gravitate towards like Copperplate, it’s a beautiful hand that can lend itself to more than just the rigorous style I learned during class.
