This is my latest Scroll - a Sigillum Coronae for a good friend - The Honourable Lady Genevieve de la Flechiere. It is based on the Codex Manesse, but still an original composition. It is a first for several reasons - firstly because I screwed up my courage enough to tackle human figures, secondly because I tested out a more watery (and therefore smoother) consistancy of gouache, thirdly because its my first attempt at using Pergamenata paper and finally because I also decided to make a serious attempt at proper shading. I am not happy with the Calligraphy I think I used the wrong nib. But overall I am satisfied with the attempt.
