Most of the family trees I've worked on have been a complete project starting with a blank sheet of paper.
This one is different - the tree was created for my customer some years ago, and as her children marry and have children she has wanted to have their details added. We're fortunate that the original calligrapher left plenty of space - and I'm pleased to say used good quality paper.
It's an interesting challenge adding to a tree - matching the style of the original calligrapher and adding the names but keeping the piece looking balanced.
