Today I have been practicing brush strokes and what is better than working on calligraphy for that - Me, a bar of ink and a big brush and some watercolours aceo-sized pieces of paper.

Here are the results. Among the 4 most used stles I chose to work on the more cursive, artistic style than the more square, printed version of the symbols.
During the last months I have experimented with changing colours or opaquiety/transparancy of different mediums, looked at values and tones by working in monochrome etc etc. All in all I have found that every style, topic or medium has something to teach me and thus I can safely just follow wherever my muse is taking me. At present it is obvious that it is taking me practicing lines and movements.
All I need to do is follow along. Thank you muse
