The pointed brush (or pen) is a fairly recent calligraphic tool for Western calligraphers. There is no distinct slope or pen angle and letters may be bigger or smaller as each person may decide how precise they want to be. The pressure on the down slope will create thicker strokes while a light upward stroke makes the contrast with thinner lines. The lettering can be slanted or upright, cursive or not depending on individual preference.
Small class size is perfect for beginner level.
