Scriptorium / University

Many thanks to Bridget because I enjoyed the scriptorium at university very much (and forgot to attempt the classes I wanted to *lol*)

I also enjoyed to practise some whitework without sample - really a new experience :)

>here< are some more pictures from university (for example the king and queen signing the great scroll for Anya, ... :)

Very nice!

Is all of the detail on the green done with a brush rather than a pen? I've had terrible problems doing it with a pen as I can't find a suitable ink.

I am not sure about Racaire's technique but I do all my white work with gouache and a brush. I have yet to find ink that works as well.

In this instance though on the green, the white work was done with a brush.

I am grateful to all who came to the scriptorium and helped out. We got a lot of work done and it was a lot of fun.

thanks
Bridget

yop - a brush (thanks to Bridget) and white gouache (thanks to Emma) :D

...and it was really interesting to work the first time with this watercolors (Aquarellfarben?) Bridget borrowed me - I should buy some for further projects :)
