Kaisho Basic: CD 2
This is the second section of the Takase Shodokai Japanese Calligraphy Series.
Here we continue to focus on the basic strokes of the kaisho font. Remember that kaisho is a bold and precise style. Our emphasis in this section is to continue to practice the lines and strokes previously introduced.
Lesson 7 – 主 shu (Lord)
Lesson 7 gives us a chance to revisit the three yokoga that we first worked on in lesson 2.
Lesson 8 – 月 tsuki (Moon)
Tsuki gives us a chance to practice a hidaribarai along with a tensetsu that ends in a tategahane. Tsuki is a deceptively simple character that is often seen in Japanese Calligraphic works.
Lesson 9 – 花 hana (Flower)
Hana is going to give us good practice in contrasting the harai and hane strokes as there are two each in this character.
Lesson 10 – 岩 iwa (Rock)
Iwa gives us a chance to revisit tensetsu which has two that are in opposite directions.
Lesson 11 – 友 tomo (Friend)
Tomo gives us the opportunity to practice the harai strokes. There are three in this one simple character with two hidaribarai and one migibarai.
Lesson 12 – 目 me (Eye)
We have been practicing the harai and hane strokes in most of the characters. For this final lesson we are going to use me which is all tatega, yokoga and tensetsu.
