This lovely little storky S is from the Lindisfarne Gospels. I really don't enjoy doing knotwork. I love knotwork and am constantly drawn to it, but I don't enjoy doing it. All those twists and turns and squigglies and trying to keep track of where they are all going can be mind boggling! But alas, I fall for them everytime I find a new one. I think the part I enjoy the best is the rubrication (those little red dots around the letter.)
I loved this U the first time I saw it! I loved how it was arranged and the little men inside it. I haven't decided if they are drinking a toast or paying off a bet! I like doing medieval people. This was a fun piece to do!
The above is another piece from Lindisfarne. If you look closely you can see where I got lost in the knotwork!
This A was mostly free-hand. I couldn't see lightboxing something so simple. I used an 01 pen to do the "doodling."
This is another freehand scroll. I wasn't too keen on the goldwork on the bar, but others said it looked nice, so I let it be. I included the lily in the center of the floral work so that it could be used for Order of the Argent Lily.
I love this rose. I left this as a sort of generic letter. It could be a T, C, or G. This was a fun one.
