P is for proportion. Proportion and symmetry make letterforms beautiful and elegant. The benefits of oval drills will be evident in majuscule P. The rear loop and front loop should look like running or rolling ovals.
Understanding the fundamental principles of your chosen hand will help you in writing your letterforms. Here are some additional reminders for myself during practice: 1) Relax your grip! Shaky hairlines caused by tight grip on pen. 2) Make sure loop is same size as loops of other letters. 3) Always make sure shades are parallel
"M is for majuscule, my favorite form of torture. I find the letter M (and A and N) challenging because it begins with a hairline. I still struggle in maintaining the consistency of the the stroke angle when I write. for M: The SHADES follow the slant, NOT the hairlines. • • •
