Hi, I’m Julian Wasserman and my studio is Wasserman Design and we’re learning chancery cursive script. Right now we’re doing the capital letters, also called majuscules, from K through N. Now the letter K is also a large letter, so with the letter K, we start this way and I’ll add the flag. And then I can go this way, little higher than mid way for that waist. And then I’m flattening out the angle of my pen so that it’s not at a 45 degree angle. And I’m going down there. It’s a very large letter, okay. Another way of making the K is a more straight line, little foot. And I can curve this stroke. Instead of making it this way, I can make it this way. And then, there. And since that looks so fancy and this top looks so plain, I’ll add a little flourish. Okay. And then the letter L, you’ll see… this… one… two, now see that’s much longer the letter I, the width of it. And since I had this footed edge I can go back like this and just add a little hat, if I like. You’ll find your own way of making these letters that fits your personality and that will start becoming a part of you. And when readers see your calligraphy, they will know it’s by you, the writer. Another way of making an L, if I make this straight, is… and that’s much more plain. So the letter M and the letter N we’ll make. Okay. This, and I put on a little foot, just a small one, coming down right to the point, right to the line, and I’m actually going over, just a tiny bit of the pencil line. Then I’m taking another stroke, and I’m going down to meet it, and when I make this fourth stroke, my aim, my intention is to make the triangle shape that will come from the white face to match this first triangle, not this second middle triangle, okay. So what I’m aiming is that this stroke and this stroke are balanced, not this stroke, okay. And that’s just fine as an M, as a capital M, it doesn’t need any more curlequous added to it. But if I want to make curlequous on an M, I can go sway, and I went way below the line. And it’s a very big letter, okay. And then the letter N is more straight. And to make it slanted, there. And another N, one more, and this time, I’ll go from the bottom up. And just leave it at that. So these are the letters, capital letters A through N. And we’ll do next the rest of the letters O through Z.
