Illumination - November intent to contest I

An attempt at illuminating our intent to enter November Crown letter. The fine black ink lines aren't strait enough and I've screwed up the shading on some of the blue items so I'm not entirely happy with it. I'll be re-doing it with a light green as well as it looks to dark, and the green doesn't match the original close enough. Apart from that, this was an enjoyable learning project for shading. I might apply some of these techniques on my next plate project. Though here the base colour is dark, and when dry, shaded with two lighter colours which won't work with glaze pigments.
