“Vibrant Flowers”, 8×10 Calligraphy

I (Rebecca!) absolutely love the complicated designs found in some of the older, illuminated pages. I started playing around with designs and this was what I came up with:IMG_20150207_203724702_1After putting the design down on paper and adding some color to the designs I discovered it was an incredibly bright piece (all the white!). I love the end result, though, and so I kept it as is. I did create a new piece, similar concept, and gave it a green wash. I’ll share that one later to spare you from all the awesome.
IMG_20150209_092759272_HDR_1The quotation is from Ralph Waldo Emerson and is, as far as I can tell, in the public domain (I read a blog post by an artist who thought herself limited when she discovered she had to stay in the public domain. I do not find this to be the case, there are SO many good things out there). Find this piece in my etsy shop (link on right side of page or just look for wordsremember.etsy.com).
