Recommendations: This page is late 14th century English, though it is also influenced by French and Italian work of the period. The original had dark red and dark blue vines/leaves, like cadmium red deep and ultramarine, with white highlights on the vines/leaves. The background behind the vines/leaves may be painted metallic gold or left blank. If you want to paint the vine/leaves green, a permanant green dark with yellow highlights would be appropriate. The area behind the versal may be painted a solid color, metallic gold, or diapered.
