Tiny Man

Still doing miniatures, this is the picture part of a small scroll I started back when we did the demo at the Walters. The rest of the scroll is still not finished, but it is only a rope border. This is based on an illumination from the Prayer Book of Claude de France, 1517. The image is 2 3/4 x 3 1/4, Egg Tempera and gold acrylic on velum. The whole background is metallic gold as are any highlights that look gold. In real life it looks great, the scan looks weird to me and of course shows all the flaws by enlarging the whole thing. Picture 32.
