Going totally Medieval



My friend Romuald Sourisse made this "medieval forgery" from the drawing I posted here on 20-01-2011 (Click the "Panotti" tag to see). You can see that he uses natural pigments on parchment, just like they did in the Middle Ages. I am really excited about the results and will return later this year to the insanely pictoresque town of Forcalquier to do more collaborations and learn about working with this type of material. After visiting his workplace, I can tell that Romuald is quite an expert.
Note: parchment is not paper. It is made from animal skin, often a sheep or goat.

Most excellent! I especially like seeing it in process with the pigment materials beside it!
