My first attempt on this kind of art :) I do love calligraphy a lot :heart:
I made reference randomly on the internet and create my own calligraphy.
Hope you'll like it and feel free to tell me your thoughts :)

Materials:
Silver ball point pen on black sheet.

Amazing first attempt, I think it looks lovely.  I would like to try calligraphy but I'm not sure I'd have the patience :( (Sad)

Thank you!!
I'm sure you can do it just take your time with no rush :)

You're welcome :)

Thanks for the encouragement, maybe I will give it a try when I have plenty of time to devote to it.  I think it could be quite relaxing.
