Practicing

15 september practice piece

I’m seriously out of practice for my scribal skills. I was never a fabulous artiste with the paintbrush, but I can usually make things look close to what I envision. However, at Cudgel I audited Meisterinne Katheryn’s class on shading acanthus leaves, and now is the time to practice it. So I cut a basic rectangle which I can make up into a bookmark when I finish, and painted base coats, on which to practice shaded acanthus leaves. I’m using page 120 from “The Most Beautiful Bibles” (an entirely awesome book, by the way) as my inspiration for the first bar. So, this is the baseline. Hopefully I’ll get better as I learn to layer and blend and gague scale.
