I will answer these questions and share an easy version of how to write in calligraphy which you can easily follow.

Terms To Learn


The first point to consider, what kinds of terms would you like to learn? In the previous article in this series, I gave some examples. The terms I used were: german letter, greek letters, QWERTY keyboard, Layout view, nib, brush, stroke, stroke, needle, and rhythm. Try to choose words that describe what you are looking at when you see the letters written out. So if you see the words “weight” written in german, that is probably what you are trying to portray through the stroke.

Some other terms that you may find useful are leaflet, guide, cap, block, guide, and so on. These are just some of the terms that you may encounter when you read a book on how to write in calligraphy for the first time. Now you have seen the terms and understand what is being written. If you are starting to read the book now, try to see the example below. This shows the beginner how to read the text in the calligraphies.

The next thing to think about is the font that you are going to use. A calligraphy generator is essential. This lets you choose a font that is easier to read on the paper that you are using. It is a 3 hours ago when I learned this method but I have been using it ever since and I think it is awesome.

How To Write Calligraphy?

 You can also learn how to write calligraphy letters showing details like lining up, using guides, and color blending. I am not an expert on these things but it is easy for me to say that learning the basics will take you only about one or two days. The most difficult part is knowing how to blend the colors properly. For example, it looks best to use light pastel shades for most letters except when the letter is a compound monogram.

I hope that this short article helps you become familiar with the terminology needed. I was a bit worried that it might be too complicated for beginners but it is not that hard if you have the patience.
