I hope you are enjoying these hot sunny days! Are you brushing up your calligraphy skills?! Or doing more stroke-practice?!
Before the summer holiday ends, I would like to post an Otehon for the month of August.
The summery text you can not avoid ….
“Aka-i-kin-gyo (Jap) ~ Red goldfish”
*Kingyo: Goldfish (Kin; Gold +Gyo; Fish)
*4 Kanjis and 1 Hiragana
Please check all balance lines, composition frames and some tips above.
Each Kanji have more less a clear middle line. Always start with a clear angle and check which brush technique should be applied.(side or direct brushings)
Recommended brush size is the medium to the big. Both hard or soft haired are suitable for this text.
