Hi, everyone! I am new at the Catholic Illustrators Guild and happy to be here. I am an iconography apprentice learning to write Catholic icons in the Russian-Byzantine tradition. The recessed and panel icons I have completed so far can be seen at my site Created Beauty. Here are two of the icons I recently finished:
The icons are all written using natural pigments with water-based egg tempera on wood covered with linen and traditional gesso, together with 23.5 kt gold leaf and/or silver leaf burnished by hand. Check out my site and please do not hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions.
