26 WORDS IN BASIC STROKES – WORD 10 – JOURNEY

Hello and welcome back to 26 Words in Basic Strokes. I’m Riëtte and I’m breaking down one word a day for 26 days into the basic calligraphy strokes. We’re keeping it simple, no flourishes, no bouncing. If you need an overview of the basic strokes I break them down in the Introduction video of this series. Today is word 10 – today’s word is “journey”.

We start with an upstroke.
