Basic Strokes Worksheets for Large Brush Pens
Whether you’re a newbie or experienced with brush calligraphy, it’s always a good time to practice basic strokes. I find large brush pens more challenging to work with than small ones, so I practice these basic strokes all the time. They’re especially helpful to do when you buy a new style or brand of brush pen.
The new sets of Basic Strokes Worksheets include an expanded set of basic calligraphic strokes. These strokes are simply pieces of all the letters of the alphabet.
These worksheets were designed for use with large brush pens. These are the supplies I recommend using.
- Large Brush Pens. My favorites are the Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens, Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens, and Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens.
- HP Premium Choice LaserJet paper for printing the worksheets. It’s gentle on your brush pens.

Doing the Worksheets
- Don’t focus on making your strokes perfectly match mine. Focus more on the thin upstrokes and thick downstrokes!
- Go slow. Like super slow. Speed comes with practice and time but I find my work is most consistent when I keep it slow.
Brush Calligraphy Basics
On the upstrokes, you use light pressure and on the down strokes, you use heavier pressure. I’ll demonstrate this in a video later in the post.
