Psalm XXVII by Theophilia Psalm XXVII by Theophilia
Psalm XXVII:
The LORD is my Light and my Salvation

December 24th 2012
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. :nod:

Background parchment texture used: Plain Brown Paper texture.

Nice improvisation. :)

Amazing work. The illuminated capitals and borders are beautiful. I also love how well the script complements the meaning of the words. Nice job. :D
