"Brush Lettering for beginners" - that's what I was looking for at the very beginning. I didn't know where to start, so I looked around and found a basic course on Craftsy. I have never had any training in calligraphy or lettering so I didn't know the differences.
I started off with tracing the letters with some brush markers I had that were still working despite them being a few years old.
I didn't need much to start. Some tracing paper, the brush pens or watercolor brush pens if you've got them, tape, I used painter's tape.
Water Brush Lettering is a simple and straightforward way I found out to start hand lettering. I took this course on Craftsy called Water Brush Lettering with Nicole Miyuki Santo. It was a great introduction for me because when I was done with it I wanted to keep learning. That's a good sign.
She goes over how to hold the brush, the pressure up and down, loading the brush with paint and many other lessons I need to practice.
