Two-finger brush grip
(b) How to do vertical and curved brush strokes. Figure 1-67
illustrates how to make vertical and curved brush strokes for the letters
D and O. To form the D, your first stroke is a vertical stroke (step 1).
After you have completed the vertical stroke, turn the brush sideways and
square-off the top and bottom of the vertical stroke (step 2). You then
make the left half of the curve holding the brush between the thumb and
forefinger, twisting the brush in the direction of the stroke (step 3).
The final step is to connect the curve as required to finish the letter
(step 4). To draw the letter O, you start by creating two curves, and
then turn the brush on its side to complete the letter.
