First Illumination

First IlluminationHere is a photo of my very first illumination painting.  The drawing on this scroll was completed by another artist – I merely added the painting.  Having no previous experience in painting, this was an interesting challenge.  Last spring I attended an Ithra class that focused on white work, which I attempted in a simple fashion on this document.  I also added the inner border and vining.

The Shire of River’s Bend scribal group has been kind to provide me with the opportunity to learn a new skill.
