Calligraphy Punctuation & Spacing : Writing a Calligraphy Piece
So finely we’ve come to the place where we’ve
got a good sheet of paper, it has no grid lines on it, we’ve done our guidelines for
the text, and we’ve only put the guidelines in the place where the text is going to occur.
And if you’d like a safety net, you can even lay the lettering underneath in precisely
the place where you want it, sometimes especially when you’re starting out it’s hard to gage,
if you’re starting at the right place. I’ve got my guidelines, I know what my text is,
so then I could go to the good paper, and I think with confidence and precision, put
the words exactly where we want them to be without the need for gridded paper, and make
something that you would like to give to someone, or even for yourself. I won’t finish the word,
but that’s the idea. We’re going to then take this type of practicing, which has its guidelines
and messiness, and translate into something that’s on a beautiful plain piece of paper,
and looks like it was done with care.
