Knight

Knight Sketch by Veronica Kosowski

Slowly but surely working my way up to a jousting tournament painting!  Here is a knight sketch that I've been posting about on Instagram lately.

I love all the nuances and detail of medieval society that usually get left out of modern fantasy movies.  Any art historian will tell you that the medievals lived in a colorful world with rich traditions.  Traveling musicians, jesters, troubadours, knights, chivalry, jousting, illuminated manuscripts, festivals, falconry -- I want to incorporate these often forgotten things into my fantasy stories.
