The pointed brush is an amazing tool for the beginning or experienced lettering artist. Versatility, speed & movement are some of the advantages of the pointed brush — not as easily achieved with the nib or ruling pen. Whether working small, medium or large, wild or exotic, formal or casual, we will test the brushes.
From pressure — similar to pointed pen or Roundhand — to working without lines and writing over almost any surface due to the light touch of the brush, it truly is a versatile tool. Basic strokes and warm-ups for a script alphabet and another simple brush ductus will help to develop a personal style and encourage you to create your own magic!
Time will also be spent to test a variety of surfaces and media for future reference, and actually writing words and quotes…perhaps some to be treasured.
