Apocalypse Miniature by Merwenna Apocalypse Miniature by Merwenna
This is about 3 by 3.75 inches wide, based on a miniature depicting the sounding of the 1st and 2nd trumpets of the apocalypse. It's found in a manuscript most likely from northern France (possibly Normandy) near the beginning of the fourteenth century. Made with gouache on pergamenata.

I've been eyeing this one for years looking for an excuse to finally paint it on a scroll, but I ended up just doing it as a way to test how long it takes me to paint something like this for a scroll. This took 7 hours and twenty minutes total (not counting numerous snack breaks). I've been attached to it because it has amazingly gorgeous colors. And fabrics. I think the angels turned out less androgynous and more '20's flapper. Oh well.

Prints and the original are up in my Etsy store!

Completed in late 2012.
