1 Carol singers christmas card, 145 mm square card, printed inside MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR, 1 card with envelope and presented in a cellophane bag.
Medieval Manuscript Bestiary style.
Printed from my own original painting.
Many cards now have a description of the history, folklore, myths, etymology or facts about the animal depicted.
My highly decorative and richly illustrated originals are painted in gouache and gilded with 24 ct gold leaf and are inspired by medieval illuminated manuscripts and bestiaries.
Flowers and foliage designs are found in manuscripts and I like to fuse the medieval style with my own paintings of animals which are painted with a more naturalistic and realistic feel.
You will see one of my paintings in progress in the other photo- around the easel are my gouache paint tubes, a book of 24 ct gold leaf which I mainly use and also a clam shell with shell gold. In the middle ages Monks bought powdered gold, used to illustrate and embellish their manuscripts, that had been made into a paste, it was sold in mussel shells hence the name shell gold. The other photo shows one of my cards as an example.
Using images from my own artwork I have produced these cards, They are professionally printed on trucard 355 micron FSC certified card stock..
