AoA for Eleonoora of Tammilinna

AoA for Eleonoora of Tammilinnabased on
EleonooraCatherine of Cleeves
Plate 14 of the Hours of Catherine of Cleeves

The drawing and gold work was done Mar. 25, the painting Mar. 26, and then the calligraphy Apr. 9. I was happier with this before I did the calligraphy; I still don't seem to have the right combination of nibs and ink and paper. I'm still very happy with how the border turned out.
