Painterly Scroll 1

(Note; all calligraphy on my scrolls unless otherwise noted, is by me. I am NOT a calligrapher and it is pretty bad I know. But at least it is done in period ink, Oak Gall.) 
AoA based onAthe Hastings Hours (Hours of the Virgin; the royal barge), 1500's Netherlands. Done by Master Tristan Alexander, A.S. XLIII. I love this style, doing a picture with a space inserted for the words is just perfect for a painter like myself. This was fun to do and I think the recipient really liked it. This is about 5 x 8 on velum.
