My second attempt

At the university I had time to start a second illuminated letter. I chose this ‘U’ because it gave me a chance to try painting with gold. Lady Aryanhwy had gold-gouache so I could paint it just like any other colours, but the finished result looks so much more attractive when it contains some gold. I finished this letter the week after the university was. The original is from the 15th century.

Finished: 2010-11-11
