Julie,
I'm curious...
With gestural writing are you able to have as much control to create consistent letters or does each letter vary because its a "freer" form of art? Or IS it a freer form? Maybe its more controlled than I'm visualizing. :)

Good question. You're making me think! As I look back over my gestural practice sheets, I guess the letters do have a consistency to them.

One of the exercises I like to do, though, is to try making my letters look different, by turning them; or starting at a different point; or ending in a different direction. I try NOT to do the same thing over and over again. But judging from my practice sheets, I guess that isn't always what happens. Hmmm.
