Session 12: Chinese Calligraphy for Beginners

Submissions for the exhibition is due in three weeks so it was time to narrow down the pieces for polishing.  Most student brought work that they have worked on for a week or more and the results are varied.  I think those who practiced showed better results.   The more competent students tend to practice less; such is the nature of all human beings.


The degree of difficulty increases exponentially as the character gets bigger.  Here a late comer put up her offering, freshly written and another student put up an improved version of her piece (top left):


I think they’re doing well, don’t you?

    It looks like they are making an effort. The one you showed the enlargement of, it seems as though the ink came off the brush very evenly and te strokes look nice and clean.
