Calligraphy Exercises to try

HERE is a video of me doing some very basic calligraphy warm-ups.  I like to do these before I get started so I can get used to the up and down strokes with the nib I'm using.
Every time you make an upstroke you will barely be pressing down on the paper to create the thin line, and every time you make a downstroke you will be pulling down (it is more of a pull than a push) to create a thicker stroke.  Hopefully that makes sense.  You'll see what I mean in the last exercise I did on the video!
Thanks for stopping by!
