Wed Letter Day

Week 7 This letter was one of the exercises from an illumination workshop I took with Valerie Weilmuenster several years ago. The exercise was painting acanthus leaves and I ran out of time during the workshop. So this was the perfect opportuntity to give acanthus leaves a whirl. Acanthus leaves are meant to twist and curl so the viewer sees both the inside and outside of the leaf. I think I missed a step and outlined too boldly as my leaves are flat.
What are you working on?

  1. That's pretty cool still though. I like the blues on the red and white.
