This is the second to the last sketch, at this point nearly a finished drawing, done as part of the process in making a manuscript/scroll page. The final, as seen below, was produced on vegetable parchment with gouache pigment.
The calligraphy on the page was done by a friend, before the presentation of the page to another friend as an award. This was all for a friend who is an active participant in the SCA. Though I am not a member of the society I did want to contribute something for the award which was a really big deal.
I kept the manuscript as accurate as possible from the materials to the motifs and colours of the late 1400s and early 1500s.
