Artwork Description

lluminated test page for an ongoing project : Sister Erminet teaching horticultural science to novices from the SisterCot.

*yes, for those who went "wtferminetsistercot !?", Sister Erminet and SisterCot like in Louise Cooper's Time Master novels.. she allowed me to play around Love )

For now, the border design is loosely adapted from William Morris Kelmscott's Chaucer B&W engravings. For the next plates, I'll design my own borders but I thought it was a nice idea for the test plate.

Watercolours/gouaches and gold leaf on walnut stained paper.
Real size is roughly 7 in. x 9 in.
