Vakara nodarbe – paņemt vienu vārdu vai vārdu savienojumu un uzrakstīt vienu reizi. Un tad novērtēt savu skici, atzīmējot uz tās to, kas patīk un to, kas nepatīk vai vajag uzlabot. Un tā rakstīt katru nākamo – analizējot un mainot burtu formas, distanci, slīpumu, līnīju biezumus. Tikai tā var augt un attīstīties! Ar pirmo reizi viss uzreiz nevar sanākt! Tādā veidā tu vari atrast arī interesantas un jaunas burtu formas. Eksperimentē un analizē! P.S. Kurš "ņam-ņam" variants tev visvairāk patīk? ✔️👍🏻🖌🔛 / Evening practice – take a word and write it down. And then analyze what you like in the sketch and what should be improved. Then make new sketches, each time analyzing what you got. This way you will grow and develop brush lettering skills! 👍🏻🔛🖌✔️🎨 #brushlettering #practice #moderncalligraphy #kaligrāfija #lettering #burti #ņam #ink #writing #typography #padoms #māksla #treniņš #kuretakebrushpen #lamyink
