Manuscript initial letter 'D' handpainted in purple with Scots thistles on high quality watercolour paper and framed within a square ivory mount.

Thistles are universally known as the emblem of Scotland and all things Scots - representing both strength and defiance, both very Scottish traits (at least we like to think so!)

CUSTOM IDEA - I could also paint the letter in pale purple/lilac or in light or dark green, which will also suit the thistles. Let me know what you would like the best before ordering and the same goes ifor your need a different letter than the D. .

Your order will be sent within 3-5 days of being placed and paid for - by First Class if to within the UK and by Airmail if to outside the UK. (Rest assured I will pack your initial in several layers of cardboard to ensure you receive it in perfect condition.)

Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions at all.


Finished outer size is - 120 x 120mm or 4 and 3/4" square - with the letter itself measuring approx 35 x 38mm.


I love painting Thistles! They are so easily stylised and then look so decorative with the initial letter. My favourite part is first adding the palest purple to the flowerheads then the tiny hairs all along the stems, softening the image and adding definition.

Purple is also my favourite colour and it's a strong colour so it makes the initial stand out.
