Roughly draw each letter connecting the “ee” and the “t.” Take your time as you create this initial pass of letters. This will become the underlying structure of your word. Throughout any of these practice exercises, erase often and redraw! The ability to erase is one of the best parts about chalk lettering.
Once you are happy with the structure, go back over the letterforms to thicken the downstrokes. This adds a calligraphic style to your script lettering. To get this effect requires multiple passes on the letters. Keep the exit strokes and upstrokes thin, for an elegant contrast.
