Contemporary illumination on black parchment
Autumn Wind is a creation on black parchment, dyed with iron gall ink, as in the Black Books of Hours of the late Middle Ages. The illumination is contemporary, for a change, but the techniques are the same as in medieval times. Black works fantastic with bright gold! This background creates optical illusions with colors. Finally, the transparency of the veil, which often impresses, is not so complicated to paint! You just have to learn…
The price of the parchment is 16€ per person. It is dyed with iron gall ink and stretched on wood, ready to use.
Everyone gets a drawing of the motif, ready to transfer, as well as a color copy of the illumination.
Level: Open to all, beginners included. No previous knowledge of illumination is required.
