Angel of the Acanthus

I should be packing, but its been so long since I just played with the pen.
I had worked on a vellum and watercolour version of this Baroque inspired cherub, but settled on ink on paper. Far more in my comfort zone. The piece is gilded with 23K Gold leaf and tinted with watercolour pencil and pastel. McCaffery Black was used throughout the piece. The miniature Victorian Flourish measures 4 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches and will be ready for the IAMPETH silent auction!!! Can't wait to head to Indianapolis for the convention and then home to tackle all of the tasks that I have put on hold.

Lovely as always, all the nicer for being miniature.
