Historically, italic calligraphy is one of the most beautiful for its elegant and decorative strokes. Its refined and elegant curves are full of expression, and the emotion of each letter can be reinforced by the shape, composition, and colors chosen. Calligrapher Bego Viñuela is an expert in this discipline with over eight years of experience. Her personal style and mastery of the brush have led her to work with Montblanc, San Miguel, and the Guggenheim Museum, in Bilbao (Spain).
In her first course, English Calligraphy from A to Z, Bego teaches how to work with the Copperplate calligraphy and how to rediscover the value of the handmade letter, and in this one, she will teach you to create italic calligraphy with a brush pen. You will learn to work the ductus, you will understand the shapes and counterforms, you will see how to use the brush and the possibilities it offers. You will combine forms of other alphabets and at the end of the course, you will be able to create full-of-strength visually attractive pieces. Finally, you will experiment with different techniques such as watercolor or masking ink.
