Uncial Hand Calligraphy Tips : Uncial Calligraphy Tips: T


The letter t is constructed in a completely
different way than the usual t’s that we’ve been making since we were in first grade or
in kindergarten. So again, be patient with yourself as you learn this letter because
it’s going to go against some of the things that we think comprise a t. For example, it
has no straight stroke. So the first stroke of the t is a curve. And if you’ve been practicing,
you know that that first curve is very much like the first curve of the o or the a or
the c. But, join to that stroke, we make another stroke and this is a little bit different
than any strokes that we’ve made so far, and that is to take and pull a stroke across resting
on the guideline. So I’m going to set the pen down and draw stroke to the right and
then I’m going to pull this stroke into the bowl. So we have a t that has a cross bar,
but instead of a straight spine, it has a curve spine. And again, as we make that mark,
we’re going to pull it and twist the pen just slightly.
