今天開了新毛筆,還在適應中。

Started a new brush today, and need some time to adapt to it.

Reviewing compared to learning

Ritual Vessel Stele was one of the first scripts I learned. I’m reviewing the script again after practicing seal script for quite some time.

When I first learned the script, I did not have any preconceived notions. Now, I am writing again with a lot of experience with seal script. It is a good transition since clerical script evolved from seal script. In particular, Ritual Vessel Stele still has some traces of seal script.

I am finding that I need to make an effort to emphasize the difference between clerical script and seal script to make sure the clerical script looks right.
