Mountains pride for Donnina, painted by Kattera.

A scroll for an outgoing thrown weapons champion.

Gouache and ink on Bristol, 9″x12″

Kattera asked me to do the calligraphy and a sketch for her to work from.

We picked this 15th c French Book of Hours, Beinecke MS 662, folio 21r, and replaced the miniature with the text.

I also borrowed this cat with bagpipes from another 15th c book of hours and swapped it in for a mermaid.

text done, sketch in progress.

Final sketch

Painting in progress

Almost done, just needs white work and line work.
