Medieval illumination link to an article by Patricia Lovett
« on: September 15, 2018, 03:42:47 PM »
For anyone interested in medieval illumination and gilding, this article by Patricia Lovett is hopefully interesting she does not only outline the separate steps of copying an illuminated page from a psalter, but also how long each part of the work took her! You can click on each picture and study in very high resolution how she completed each stage of the process.

Thank you for providing this link. Patricia does a lovely job providing the textual and photographic details around this process.

I have dabbled a little using colored pencils, but the process Patricia shows results in such beautiful work of the true Medieval Illumination. What a nice article to peruse on a rainy Saturday afternoon  :)
