A friend of mine is hosting a calligraphy class. To encourage the students and also to expose the art of calligraphy to more people, they started filming videos. Each video is just about one character which is written in four different calligraphy styles – Kai Shu, Cao Shu, Li Shu and Zhuan Shu style. You can clearly see how a stroke is started, processed and finalized, and how a character is formed stroke by stroke during which you learn to build the structure of the character to make it steady and beautiful.
In this article we introduce the first video to you: How to write the term “cold” in the four different calligraphy styles mentioned above.
For the term “cold” the corresponding character is “寒”, pronounced as “Han”.
The video may take several minutes to load. Be patient please.
We promise that after it is loaded you will be rewarded with the nice settings, beautiful writings and also the wonderful traditional Chinese music in the background!
