I got an assignment from the Kingdom Signet Antoinette for a scroll for Pennsic. I had plenty of time to work on it, and thought that this time I would both do a squashed bug/tromp l’oeil style (based on the grand hours of Anne of Brittany), and I’d try to do it on Perg which up until now hasn’t been playing nice with me.
I’m pleased to say it came out fairly well. I must have pounced the Perg properly this time because it was like magic.
Here it is: (It’s on an 8.5×11 piece of Perg with one inch borders on all sides for matting)
I am not quite happy with the color of the background, I was aiming for something with less of a red tone, but in a pinch it’ll do. I’m really happy about how the poppy flowers turned out. 🙂
