Thank you for joining me in today’s Brush Lettering Alphabet series. As we continue this series, today’s video is learning how to letter the lowercase “g”.
If you have not seen the previous videos, check out my Youtube channel for the video tutorials of lowercase letters A-F.
In this video, I’m using the lettering practice sheet from my Brush Strokes Workbook (http://yourcreativeadventure.com/workbook/) with the Pentel Touch pen for practicing the lettering of lowercase “g”.
Today’s encouraging quote is from Sylvia Plath. She said, “The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Doubt is a hindrance to discovering your true potential. Failure is not the enemy of success. The true enemy to your success is not trying at all. If you continue to doubt yourself, you won’t be able to give yourself space to be creative and find your own voice, your own style.
So together, let’s be creative and always remind ourselves, we can do this. We can learn how to letter the lowercase “g” together!
Tips for Brush Lettering
Focus on breathing and going slow. The slower you go, the better you will be able to focus on the transition between the thick and thin strokes of your letter.
One of the differences between calligraphy and handwriting is that in calligraphy you pick up your pen between each stroke.
Don’t worry about getting it perfect. You will see progress when you practice consistently even if for just a few minutes per day.
There’s no right or wrong when using modern calligraphy and brush lettering. You have the freedom to create your own style.
