William AoA Scroll Finished

Well, the Illumination part is finished. This is based on a page from the Master of the Riccardiana Lactantius, leaf from a Benedictine antiphonary with the Trinity in an Initial G. Florence second half of the 15th century. The miniature is inspired by the Biblioteca Medicea-Laurenziana, Plut.42.19, Brunetto Latino, Il Tesoro, fol. 72. I changed the figure to look a bit more like William and added period glasses and the astrolabe. * 1/2 x 11 Egg Tempera, Pro White, Gold leaf and Micron marker on velum. Picture 26.
