Day 6 of Icon Writing: I Love My Jesus
Today in icon class I darkened his brows and mustache, colored his hair a beard a bit deeper and deepened a few shadows. I also added the strokes of light to his face. I will work on the hair and beard next week, and then I will be ready for the gold.
I love my Jesus.
I love their Jesus’ too.
I discovered when I got home that I have forgotten my brushes at my teacher’s studio. That’s probably a good thing because I was feeling so confident this afternoon that I thought about tackling the beard and hair on my own this week so I would be ready for the gold leaf next week for sure.
Talk about mysterious ways! 😛
