Final Christ the Teacher Icon

I’m finally getting around to posting how this was finished.  Final size is 6 feet by 10 feet, oil on Canvas.  If you’re not familiar with traditional iconography, the lettering in the halo represents the Greek phrase, “I who Am” – referring to the divinity of Christ.

You can get a print on paper or wood here: Fine Art America

Madonna Panel Update

I’ve done the base shading, and now I’m starting to lay in the gold line, which will take awhile.  I’m not going to start on the faces, hands and feet till the rest is done, since I’m doing this part in egg tempera, but I’m going to change over to oils for the skin.
