I am really happy about a new calligraphy drill I have created to help you control the thick and thin strokes when writing with a brush pen!
This new drill will really help you figure out those transitions and avoid the problem of having your strokes look all the same size.
The first step is to practice drawing the basic strokes with only the tip of your brush pen. The second step is to add in the thick strokes separately. You can even try this with letters and words!
I used the Kelly Creates Dream Pens and the Kelly Creates Multicolor Small Brush pens on my Grid Practice pad.
Watch my YouTube video demo to understand this practice drill and be prepared to see a big change in your thick and thin strokes!
