MacCon's Court Baronage by Merwenna MacCon's Court Baronage by Merwenna
Based on the Grandes Heures of Jean, Duke of Berry.

This is the second time I've used this source, and I had forgotten how INCREDIBLY PAINSTAKINGLY LONG it takes to paint.

Calligraphy was done by the most excellent Isemay the Nimble.

It was for our outgoing baron at his devestiture, right before he moved far far away to another kingdom. He was one of the first people I ever met in the SCA, and he's like everyone's scadian big brother. :)

The miniature is based off of the fresco equestrian portrait of Guidoriccio da Fogliano, c. 1328-30, in Sienna:

I love this. I just got a new sourcebook that has images from the Grandes Heures, as opposed to only the Tres Riches.....Joy!
