Basic Brush

Daily practice sheet using a half-inch flat brush to write a Neuland alphabet.

Recently, I’ve been doing morning practice with a broad, flat brush.
Here, I’m writing a version of the Neuland hand, which requires a lot of brush manipulation.
I’m trying to practice the smooth twisting of the brush to prepare for the delicate serifs of Roman capitals.
