The LORD is my Light and my Salvation

Ink, watercolors, GIMP
One of my older brothers requested that I do a calligraphy piece of Psalm 27 (one of his favorite psalms) as a Christmas gift for him. This year I've been kinda scurrying to finish all these art projects as Christmas gift for people (with more to come) so that's made my Christmas a bit more jam-packed than usual. Anyway, enjoy! I don't have a whole lot to say about this one. I didn't have a piece of paper big enough (that would fit in the scanner) or a nib small enough to do all of this on one page, so I ended up doing the calligraphy and illuminated letters separately and then I pieced them together in Paint and added the parchment background in GIMP. Background parchment texture used: Plain Brown Paper texture.
