Have you done the Zodiac calligraphy yet?!
Or
Are you already moving on to a spring text?!

Here I’d like to post some fantastic zodiac calligraphy works from my students – (both private sessions and workshops in January)
As you might’ve seen 2020 is the year of the rat, started from the 25th.January.


The first calligraphy of the year : KAKIZOME was 子、鼠 / Rat in zodiac and pictographic Kanji accompanied with 世界平和 / World Peace.

Technically we focused on basics and clear transparent lines.
Another focus I really wanted my students to concentrate on was the deep inner input of mindfulness while we did the text  世界平和 / World Peace.
All practised so beautifully….

If you are no more beginner, you could practise Sanshotai 鼠.

When you do, please practice these three styles always in a loop circle from the right hand side: Sosho←Gyosho←Kaisho

This is the practice which has a light systematic flow so we can learn not only the different brush movement from Kaisho to Sosho but also the different energy evaluation quite effectively.

HAPPY PRACTICE!
