Learn To Write Arabic
Posted 28 March 2013 - 15:40
What would have been my follow-up term of Arabic was canceled and I have no other local resources. I'm working out of a text/CD series sold and well-reviewed on Amazon which is furthering my literacy but not my speech. I really need more exposure than the audio snippets provided, and most especially, I need someone to hear ME and correct me!
There is such diversity on this forum; I thought I'd ask about this online school...
One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem,
see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

My first try, it's my name for anyone who can't read Arabic.
I went slow and carefully. Pen was a MB 146 OB, ink was Pelikan Blue, paper was a Franklin Planner.

I went back to Salman's blog and found 3 new design of nib holders which I named, the beaver tail, the flower bud and the spoon.
I can only imagine somebody taking the tiny spoon to pick up natural pigments and mix them to make a very special ink.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful and whimsical designs!

Anne-Sophie - it is I who should thank you for giving my holders names. Your interest is most appreciated, especially when it spurs me to pick up a knife and just start whittling away.
This one is a direct result of your post :-)
Those who say it can't be done should get out of the way of those doing it.
