This is the first and only scroll I have done based on an illuminated page from Venice. I love the style and had allot of fun doing this. It is based on one of seventeen leaves at the Fitswilliam Museum, it is the opening page for a Dogale, issued by Doge Andre Gritti (1523-1539) for Pietro Dechataipetra or de Tagliapiertra. Venice, 1535. This is done in metallic gold and shaded on velum. Calligraphy done in Oak Gall ink.
