To change my mind a bit, I just made a small gilded versal on a pebble.
The patterns are inspired by those found in a 12th century manuscript and I will teach the construction of this kind of initials (but not on a pebble) in March 2023 in an online course in English that will be broadcasted by the gentle penman
I am making progress on my materials for the course on 12th century initials and filigrees that will take place next April.
But, of course, nothing beats creating to put into practice the elements found in the manuscripts. So here is a small piece of a work in progress.
Yes, it’s green (sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone), soon a complete view of this composition and, in the meantime, you can already register for the course at the Arche de Saint-Antoine.
I’ve been very busy lately with my online courses and I haven’t had much time to create new works even if I have (as always) lots of projects in my drawers. To make you wait, here are a few small letters with, for once, a little bit of color (I confess, my palette is limited).
