The next letter in my copperplate basics alphabet is a bit of a strange one if you think in terms of the basic strokes we had reviewed in the beginning  for this coming letter and for one of the last letters, you need to understand how to make a reverse oval, where the shade is on the right side and not the left as it is in a normal oval! I have included the basic shape as well as the two variations we will need in this video  here are my tips for executing this stroke:
> this stroke is only as tall as your x-height
> I start this stroke at 12 o’clock and go clockwise from the header line (H)
> as you begin to make the curve, don’t forget your hairline zones at (H) and the baseline (B)
> the left edge of the downstroke should follow straight along the 55degree slant, and the right edge will be what curves
> as you begin to go clockwise, gradually apply pressure, the widest part of your shade should be near the middle of the downstroke - halfway between (H) and (B)
> after you cross half way from (H) to (B), gradually begin decreasing pressure until you are at a hairline by the time you reach (B) - remember it is always the right edge of the shade that curves, while the left side remains along the 55degree slant!
> continue the oval shape clockwise in a hairline until you meet back at (H) where you started!

We are now ready to combine the basic strokes into letters  here are the strokes involved in the lowercase R for my copperplate basics alphabet  posting this one early in the morning because our friends are arriving at the resort later today, so I don’t want to forget! Thank you so much for following along with me this far, we are on the back half and home stretch 
> begin with a taller entry stroke - I cross the header line up to 1/3-1/2 way to the 1st ascender line
> your height choice is stylistic to you, but make sure it is consistent!
> I do not begin adding pressure until after I cross the header line again, so I maintain a hairline and come down, then kick out slightly so there is a tiny white space triangle between the entry stroke, hairline downstroke and the header line
> then i finish it off with a shortened underturn! Make sure that your shade is along the 55degree slant 
> when I learned this letter, my teacher suggested that I use the basic oval shape to guide me. I will attempt to explain, but if you would rather see a video to explain please post a comment below and I’ll add it to my filming list!
> if you imagine an oval, the hairline entry stroke will start around 7 o’clock and cross at the top right at 12 o’clock! Then as you come back down on a hairline, the shade will follow the right edge of the oval at its widest point to give you spacing, before you exit out on the hairline exit stroke!
> practice, Practice, PRACTICE!! And don’t forget to tag me so I can see and cheer you on!!

We are now ready to combine the basic strokes into letters  here are the strokes involved in the lowercase Q for my copperplate basics alphabet  this letter is almost identical to the lowercase G except for the backwards descending loop 🧐
> begin with a half entry stroke
> next is an oval
> then you do a reverse descending loop - instead of curving clockwise you curve counterclockwise when you begin the hairline, everything else is exactly the same 
> finally your exit stroke!
> practice, Practice, PRACTICE!! And don’t forget to tag me so I can see and cheer you on!!

We are now ready to combine the basic strokes into letters  here are the strokes involved in the lowercase P for my copperplate basics alphabet  this is the only letter of the alphabet with a full pressure stroke, but I think this is also one of the letters that has the most opportunity for stylistic changes 🤓
> begin with an entry stroke
> next is the full pressure stroke - take this slow, remember it is okay to touch up your squared tops or bottoms if they don’t turn out perfect! I tried to keep it real by including my own touch up to prove that everyone does it 
> then you finish with a compound curve!
> practice, Practice, PRACTICE!! And don’t forget to tag me so I can see and cheer you on!!

We are now ready to combine the basic strokes into letters  here are the strokes involved in the lowercase O for my copperplate basics alphabet 
> begin with a half entry stroke
> next is the oval
> finish it up with a comma for exit stroke - it sits on the inside of the hairline, and it can be your preference whether to have it come down 1/3 or 1/2 of the x-height, just make sure you are consistent! To help me with the curve shape, I like to envision the bottom half of a hairline oval stroke, so it has the same curved arch as the rest of my letters!

> begin with an overturn
> next is another overturn - for visual consistency you should aim to have the shaded downstroke to begin at the same point as the first overturn! You can choose to begin halfway up as I did, or if it helps you be consistent then you can start at the baseline as normal, just make sure to be careful when you’re in the shade as the ink may pool or drag as you move!
> then you finish with a compound curve - my same suggestions apply here for visual consistency, try to make sure the shaded downstroke begins at the same point as the two previous overturns!
