Beautiful Work. How long did it take you? Is the shield silver leaf? What type of gouche did you use? What type of gesso base for the gold did you use? It's awesome and I'm sorry I ask way too many questions.

The gold parts appear a bit 3D... is it just an illusion or not?

Breathtakingly beautiful! If you had told be that this was from the 15th century, I would have believed it.

That is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! This is soooo in the style of the 15th century... from the colours and the ornaments down to the material. I am speechless. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of art! :love:
