#SpencerianwithLoloTamblyn Day 3:
“There is little difficulty to him who wills.” - words of wisdom from F.W. Tamblyn
All done with muscular movement, no finger movement for this exercise. FYI, muscular movement, also know as forearm movement, happens when the large muscle below your elbow acts as the pivot of all your movement. No bending of the wrist is done so you’re basically pushing ang pulling with your forearms resting on the table.
Like all his movement exercises, all of these should be done under 1 minute. I timed myself and I was able to get 12 lines/groups under a minute. Hopefully I can so 15 with more practice.
What you should remember when doing this exercise, aside from muscular movement:
1. This should be made without lifting your pen and with that, make sure that you can easily move your arm laterally on the page by swinging it from left to right.
2. Make sure your lines are light. Downstrokes should not be heavier than the up strokes.
3. The connecting curve for all the letters is a compound curve. Letter O is oval in shape, like an egg, while the A shape is slender.
