    I have to say your calligraphy is very beautiful. But you should make further efforts.
    There are many versions of Chinese calligraphy. Such as regular script, running script, cursive. They all have their own characteristics,so Rome was not built in a day.
    I hope you can stick to your own preferences .
    If you need any help ,you can send message to me .I am glad to help you .
