The Enchanted Meadow Series

Pairing my love of designing Victorian scroll work with medieval painting tecnhiques on another tiny scrap of vellum. This little squirrel is 3 1/2" by 1 1/2".Watercolour, 23K flat gilding and bleedproof white. Gilding is done with Rolco Aquasize and the entire design was painted with my 3/0 Escoda Kolinsky Sable brush. I worked on the design from concept sketch to completion over a period of 4 hours today. A few more ideas are ready to join this little squirrel in the Enchanted Meadow.

Yay! I'm so happy you've started a new series, Heather. The title, "Enchanted Meadow" is perfect. (and the squirrel's tail is amazing! )
