While Annie is still working on the Illuminated lettter and the gaelic phrase WIP I decided to try something new. I am do a monk from the Book of Kells in ink, (This is for Chris, using a dip pen, like I said before you will not catch me dead using a felt tip or any other kin of pen), on canvas and then Annie will color it. I bought a cheap piece of canvas board from Wally World, (better known as WalMart), to see if we can do some of our work on canvas and the result are coming out better than exspected.

The inking and the gold leafing so now Annie can start coloring. I think Annie is thinking about coloring this one with ink instead of cp's. So here is the inking part on canvas board. Comments are welcomed.
The entire piece;

This is the first time that Annie and I have tried doing any thing on canvas and we are hoping that it turns out alright.

Annie is coloring this in gelpen. She did feel that cp's would do this work justice.

Another update. Annie is having trouble with this one because see can not see the colors in her head. And see needs to see them in her head before she will test them on her test board. So this is why this one is taking so long.

Hi and thanx for posting this WIP. Any chance of a larger pic.

I didn't vote in the tutorial poll, but would be interested in a tutorial on illumination.
