I think it is a big day for a scribe when they are asked by someone they love and respect to create their peerage scroll so when Mistress Caitlin asked me to do her Pelican scroll I was touched and delighted. I knew she liked pretty and elegant and had a late period persona. So I spent some time looking through books on illumination and found what I thought was a nice image.
Water colour on Fabriano print makers paper, regular ink ( red and black) and gold leaf. It was also a scroll that shows some of my early early gold work. I made mistakes and I see them now, too much white space and the capital letter is a bit bare but over all it's not bad for a first peer scroll.
