NATIVITY OF THE THEOTOKOS ICON IN PROGRESS

A new Icon of the Nativity of the Theotokos is shown in progress.

First the composition was layed out. This was followed by guilding with 22k gold leaf where appropriate. The base colors were then applied on the entire piece.

Now, the painting process has begun, laying in colors in layers from dark to light – giving the figures form. Details are gradually added. Slowly the composition begins to come alive.

More to come!

    Wow, a big one! Love the bright colors. Would I be right in guessing Theotokos means God or maybe messiah or such?

    Andrij!

    Hi, it’s Tammy from Philly . I find your web site fascinating . It looks like all is going well for you!

    Just out of interest, what medium do you use when painting your icons? I can’t tell if you are holding a brush or pencil.

    Thanks Andrij,
