Icon Workshop July - August 2015, Belmont Abbey

We had an excellent icon workshop in August at Belmont Abbey. The students (here below) also attended the first course I gave at Belmont Abbey in January. I am really pleased because they did really well, especially using a new technique of painting and gilding. The icon of Archangel Michael we worked on was based on the 14th century icon, Constantinople, which is now exhibited in the Byzantine and Christian Museum in Athens.

Here we worked on flesh tones and the Ucrainian painting technique. All the students were able to finish the icons within a week and with excellent results.

  1. Most interesting, as was last night's TV programme about life in the abbey! (BBC4, I think!).
