ICONS:

 

RACE TO THE FINISH

We shared the beginnings

of these two Icons

in a previous Blog Post.

Now,

work on the two pieces continues.

The rest of the story:

With the robes completed, the faces and hands are built up layer after layer.

—–

Still lighter.

—–

The form emerges.

—–

and even more.

—–

The details and highlights are added on the faces and hands,

as is the lettering and inscriptions.

—–

22k gold is applied to all detail and trim on the robes.

—–

With the process of painting complete, the Icons are coated with a protective varnish /sealer.

—–

The finished Christ the Lightgiver,

—–

and the Theotokos of Korsun.

The completed Icons are framed and ready for packing.

    Lovely work, but I am interested in knowing why the head sizes are not more uniform, i.e., Our Lady’s profile is so much larger than Christ’s. Are these two icons going to the same recipient?

    Good Morning, Andrij!
    I really like the photographed stages of creation; I can envision a series in fade-in fashion against a music background….

  3. Of course being in the bridal business for so long, I have a soft spot for anything related to weddings.
    Both pieces are simply beautiful as always.

    Glad the cat keeps you on track! Everyone needs a supervisor!

    Your wedding icons are stunning, Andrij, real family heirlooms.

    They are such an important part of our religious traditions. In Ukraine,
    the parents present these Icons to the young couple before the
    wedding ceremony, the Icons are blessed during the service, and then
    are hung in the home to protect the family through the years. In
    time they are passed down to children and grandchildren.

    Yours are beautifully traditional and yet contemporary at the same time.
