Weekly Calligraphy: Brush (Fude)

[[Argh I'm late for this one but the weather was just nice enough the other day to finally use my camera.]]

Brush - 筆 (ふで pronounced 'foo-deh')

The Chinese writing system, and in turn the Korean and Japanese writing systems, used the brush as both a writing tool and a means of artistic expression. In my calligraphy reference book I found a wonderful interpretation of the character. Nearly every basic stroke form that you would learn with an instructor was shown here. I couldn't pass up the chance to try it out.
