What's Shodo(Japanese calligraphy) ?
Japanese calligraphy is the art of drawing character.
Japanese calligraphy was influenced by, and influenced, Zen thought.
For any particular piece of paper, the calligrapher has but one chance to create with the brush. The brush strokes cannot be corrected and even a lack of confidence will show up in the work.
What distinguishes good calligraphy from bad?
There is a natural balance in both the characters and the composition as a whole.
Curved lines are delicate and mobile.
You can think of calligraphy in terms of music. The poem is like the musical score and the calligrapher like the pianist.
