Date: St. Radegund’s Faire 2021
Paper: 1.5″ x 1.8″ goat parchment
Illumination: Gouache, shell gold

Inspiration: Various Elizabeth portrait miniatures by Nicholas Hilliard, including Queen Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester. This video I found on Youtube by Penny Crichton-Seager was also very instructive: Painting Miniatures – learning from Nicholas Hilliard. Part One. (I don’t think there’s a part two, unfortunately).
