Laurel document for Spike Zoetaert. Parchment, Walnut ink, Gouache. 6" x 8". Recipient makes beautiful cast pewter items, loves bright colors and requested a small trompe l'oeil style book page with pinks. This is my first attempt at this style, and is based on several pages from the book of hours of Englebert of Nassau. The kingdom seal is painted in to match the style of the pewter badges made by Spike.
Finished, with reference image
