Circles

No, I'm not forgetting you, neither do I forgot calligraphy.
The fact is that I have quite a lot of work right now and that I'm working on a new project I can't tell you about for the moment.
As a starter, just a pic :

weekend report

An ill apple tree cut, 20 m² of ground digged, 5 rose bush and an orange tree transplanted, lots of other maintenance works in the garden... To make it short, I spent all my weekend in the garden.
But, as I woke up early, I found time to etch a new cadel initial, inspired by the same manuscript as the previous one (Basel, Universit├Ątsbibliothek, AN II 3).



It's quite different from the cadel initials I already made & I like it.
I think I'll made other ones inspired by the same manuscript but the priority now is the maintenance of the garden :-)

Cadel initial

Spring is coming and my garden requests all of my time, so no time to do calligraphy. But, surfing on the web, I came accross a manuscript with quite a lot of cadel initials and could not resist. So here is a new cadel initial, inspired by the Basel, Universit├Ątsbibliothek, AN II 3, an initial P, as usual, acid-etched on zinc.



I'm quite happy with it, partly because I could make it smaller than the previous ones without loosing the quality of the etching. It is 6 cm high.

Soon more initials inspired by the same manuscript, if gardening does not take all my spare time :-)
