6 Months Later and One Hand instead of Three
I had just been on a practice frenzy last week – finishing my last Carolingian drills by doing them twice a day when I could. On my last post I planned to finish learning 3 hands in 6 months, but sadly, it didn’t happen. I only ended up finishing one, even with the drills cut in half, and only just started on the Gothic exercises.
I have finished learning Uncial hand from the book Mastering Calligraphy: The Complete Guide to Hand Lettering. It’s been roughly a year since I started learning from the book, beginning with Roman Capitals.
The first broad edge nib that I use is a Mitchell, but I went and used the Speedball C for practising Uncial just to try different nibs.
From my novice point of view, there are a few things that make broad edge calligraphy what it is, especially how they differ from pointed pen calligraphy. It seems to me if you know the syntax, you will get an idea of how it works.

Calligraphy art is not at all limited to paper and ink, but when it comes to calligraphic ink, it can be simple and complicated.
It’s peculiarly shaped, needs some adjustments, and ‘can seem as mystical as a wizard’s staff’ for the novice. Surely it’s natural to be a tiny bit anxious about using an oblique penholder for the first time.

Despite everything I said before about the same strokes used in many hands, a new hand is still a new hand.
