My Sketchbook

Here is a little bit of springtime from my sketchbook. I am going to turn these flowers into a painted pattern that I will model after Anne Boleyn's Book of Hours. It's really interesting to study manuscript illustration techniques from that time period. In my art history books I always see very ornate lettering with gold leaf and dramatic religious scenes. A closer look has shown me a softer, more delicate form of the art of illumination. This illustration is for a blog design assignment for my new client in Australia. Although I want to share more details, I'm going to wait for a bigger reveal once the project is done and my blogger friend has announced her new look.
