I enjoyed my last day of illumination class painting this little fox. Usually we spend a week in illumination class but this year we reduced the class to two days. This little fox was based on a 15th Century French Manuscript. I worked on goat skin from Pergamena for this piece. I prepared the skin with pumice and gum sandrac and found it held the painted lines beautifully. The finished size is 3"x2" and is flat gilded with 23K gold leaf. Such a wonderful day spent illuminating.
