the AoA for Elizabeth of Turmstadt

Here are some pictures of the AoA for Elizabeth of Turmstadt, given to her at Feast of Fools 1st of March 2014. Great practice for shading and I realized I have to work on my textura quadrata!

meine erste kalligraphische Arbeit für meine "Baronie"

Eine der ersten kalligraphischen Arbeiten seit meiner Schaffenspause ist die "Kriegserklärung" meiner Baronie. Grund: die östereichischen Nachbarn wollen den frisch gekauften Sonnenschutz der Baronin nicht herausgeben!!!

One of my first peaces of calligraphy since my break... the war declaration of my Barony. Reason: our neighbours from Austria do not want to return the newly purchased sunshade of the Baroness!!!

Schrift: meine Version der Bastarda / my version of Bastard Secretary

Die erste Zeile und den ersten Absatz habe ich mit ein paar Cadels verziert.
The first line and the first paragraph are beautified with cadels.

Papier: Aquarelpapier
Tinte: Eisengallus

The leaves series #1 & 2

Its been over a year since my last post. I actually can not say I have been buzy with art but nevertheless I got one projetct finished and it is the first of a series that I want to dedicate to my Mama B! You know who you are!
Inspiration für motive: I went out for a walk with the dog of my parents a couple of years ago. It was fall and I just had bought my first digital camera. I saw skeletons of leaves alongside the trail and thats what caught my imagination...

in the process #1&2
Technique: Selfmade "Rotbuschtinte" on Aquarell paper. Washed off several times and applied new to the paper.
#1 almost finnished

#1 finished, unsigned and not framed
