Handwriting, like letter writing, is an over looked skill in an electronic lifestyle. True as well for urban sketching as contrasted to cell phone snaps and selfies.

This year I’ve started practices to improve my calligraphy, letter writing and sketching skills. Shout outs to:

#showmeyourdrills … Becca’s passion to helping us (re) learn pen action

#oliveinks … Wendy is my pen friend, thanks to the annual #incowrimo2017

#sketchingnowbuildings … Liz’s (Steel not me) ten week course helping with the eye hand skills that make #urbansketching much less embarrassing.

So check out my progress on Instagram @lizzardlaw. Let me know here what art you are working on.
