The Pabenham-Clifford Hours
Modelling of draperies
Draperies of different colours were modelled in different ways. Dark blue, orange and dark pink fabrics were painted in uniform hues, with folds defined by black lines, and decorative motifs painted in thin white lines. This gives them a rather ‘flat’ appearance compared with the light pink and light blue robes, which were modelled with gradations of colour to create the illusion of volume.
On fol. 3r, the modelling is more three-dimensional and dynamic, but the gradation of colour is less delicate than on other folios.
