26 Words in Basic Strokes – Word 21 – Ultimate

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 we are doing word number 21, ultimate.

We’ll start with an upstroke.

Move on to an underturn stroke.

Another underturn stroke.

An l-stroke.

A t-stroke – they’re both the same, I just call them either.

An upside down or reverse compound curve where you start with a thick downstroke.

An overturn stroke.

A compound curve. Your exit stroke on your compound curve or your last stroke on your compound curve doesn’t quite reach the x-height.

An oval.

An underturn stroke.

A t-stroke.

And an e-stroke.

Let’s connect the strokes.
