New Scroll Update

Damp weather and frustration with doing the gold leafing has made me decide to do the color work on this before finishing the leafing. It is almost done except the blank areas being leafed and the miniature getting details. Calligraphy will be added once it is finished.


  1. That's beautiful! I love your illuminations. What is the gentleman in the letter doing? Looks like he has a calipers and a mirror. Is he a graphic designer, medieval style?

  2. Thanks! He is measuring something or calculating something. He is useing a medieval compasse and the round thing that looks like a mirror now is not finished and is an astrolabe.
