All coaches will tell you that when nothing works, you have to go back to basics. So here is a new flower, a pattern of my own composition that I have already practiced a number of times. It is 5 cm in diameter, on handmade paper, gilding with gold leaf, alizarin lacquer and gum arabic for the background, iron gall ink for the filigree
I’m not unhappy with the result, it gives me confidence to start working on new compositions and I needed it because of my last drafts!
A few months ago, during a visit to Quimper, I was admiring the stained glass windows of the cathedral when the idea came up to use them for a composition. So here is a first variation on the theme (I think there will be more).
