Spirals are hard…

I’ve discovered why a great many illuminated capitals have funny shapes in them sometimes, they’re where people cover up splodges. I need to invest in better pens. I have an ongoing project to create a few generic medieval pictures I decided to tackle some of those today. I was going pretty well until I met with calamity when I accidentally knocked over the bottle of ink, but here are some I rescued.

The reason for the post title is that I also tried my hand at some illuminated capitals. U for Uanne, an alternative household name and A because there are more household members whose names begin with A than any other capital.
