I know I’ve been gone a week but something sad happened over the last week as we have lost a member of the family. Life goes on though. So let’s move on shall we?

Today, we’re going to tackle ovals and this makes up many letters of the alphabet. Let me show you how it’s done.

Creating ovals are somewhat similar to underturns. The only difference is that, you’re creating a circle and you

  • begin drawing your ovals with closed tines.
  • drag you pen down a little, create pressure for your tines to open.
  • before reaching your baseline, gradually release pressure
  • make a curve going up closing the circle.

Happy writing!
