Tuesday tidbits

in which our plucky heroine is charmed and pleased...

In this clever advert, Oregon is cast as a Miyazaki-esque tourist destination, which, in many ways, it actually is...


Yesterday was Scribal Night, when local Three Mountains folks interested in calligraphy and illumination get together for a bit of social scribal time. I worked on painting a Summits Grail charter, that had been designed by my friend Rafny.
I tried a slightly different palette on this one with some subtler greens and several different shades of red. My thought was that a dark, but diapered, background would help the decorative ribbon to stand out from the background. The gold highlights in the diapering are so narrow that depending on the lighting they either shine brightly or almost disappear, and I quite like that effect:

And, lastly, a small error (the dreaded though thankfully rare, accidental setting my hand down on a not yet dry area, and transferring a blot of paint) ended up offering a chance to add an additonal detail to the line filler - I am rather ridiculously pleased with my "save" showing the Red Grail of Service

  1. I love the rich colors in your charter. The "Red Grail of Service" makes the charter much more interesting than it would have been without it. A happy accident, or the fates having a bit of fun.
