Second Gothic Set Complete

And this wraps up the second set--f, k, o, q, p, and v. Interesting how some characters come easier... Here I'm using that new guideline generator to print out practice sheets.

The upcoming third and final instruction set includes the last eight characters, symbols with some squiggly lines and a fancy trick using the edge of the nib.

I am trying to relax while forming characters but it takes a good deal of awareness to keep a loose hand.

And lastly, do check out the British Library Online Catalogue of Illuminated Manuscripts. I will be getting lost there.
