The Ancient Art of Storytelling

I've always loved these Medieval Manuscripts, an apt reminder at this time of year too, Well done Paul.

I agree with Debs, lovely, it caught my eye straight away.A great portfolio.

Thank you Ladies. Glad you liked it.

This must have taken you ages! Beautiful colours. How did you do that really delicate detailed bit within the wide part of the letter a ?

Thank you Sarah and Heather, I appreciate your comments. Heather, it is simply opaque watercolour paint (white gouache with a touch of blue) painted over the blue background.

Saw the Book of Kells in Dublin a few years ago and had the idea of a medieval image of some sort in the back of my mind since taking up painting again. This is my impression of a genuine medieval document. Nobody knows who painted it, but the image suited my purposes. I didn't intend to use a pen, but I'm working so small that it was getting fiddly with paint.
