An old piece, got it out to try working on it some more.

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it!

Illumination Piece for Tuesday

Copy of illumniation reproduced in one the Eyewitness books,"Medieval Life". On parchment, paint made in the workshop, commercial dry pigment mixed with gum arabic, 24k gold leaf, about 4x6, preliminary sketched with lead stylus.
I don't even remember where I got most of the parchment I own; picked it up years ago when I was doing a lot more of this kind of work.
