Arabic Composition in a new script

This is a composition I did recently. The style is based on a modern script developed by a Calligrapher in Iran. The script is called 'Kereshmeh'. I could not find proper instructions for the script but I think I got the mood of it right with this attempt.

The Arabic reads: Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim. This translates to 'In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful'.

Here is a picture:



It is hard to get a picture in the frame because of the reflections:



This is one of the practice sheets where I am working out the shapes and ligature. There are several more of these :-)




I have not been practising Arabic Calligraphy much lately so this was a good warm-up as well as a humbling reminder of how much work needs to go into it. One can't just wing it.

Re: Arabic Composition in a new script

Such beautiful, flowing script. Even not knowing the language, it is good to look at.

Re: Arabic Composition in a new script

Thank you for your kind comment Penny. Arabic does have a very attractive flow to it even if one cannot read the script.
