Nihon Shuji’s January assignment for Kana calligraphy was designed to write on Shiki Shi (Japanese square paper board). So, I wrote two lines upper and bottom of Han shi (Shodo paper) and practiced. 日本習字のかな部1月号に、色紙サイズに書く課題がありました。半紙の上下に線を引いて練習します。

Compared to rectangle Han Shi, I felt big difference in writing on square Shiki Shi. The balance between black and white even looks better and took longer to get used to the size same time. Mmm… 普段書く半紙と比べて、書いてみた感触がとにかく違いました。色紙の正方形サイズがかなの濃淡のバランスをなんとも格好良く見せてくれる一方、このサイズに慣れるのに時間がかかりました。トホホ、、、

Thank you & level up!
