Icon Writing #5: Day 2 Almost complete

This is when our work starts to differ, with the choices we make in our highlighting.

For example, I went for a subtle look for Jesus' hair, and I'm not quite sure what happened with her veil shading... (it's prompted our first email to our workshop teacher in past years, Rev. Paige Blair). We were expecting more variation in shading like in the hair, but ... not so much.


And here's Helena's: her Jesus hair is more stylized and it's in the rules of icon writing not to be jealous, but her highlights are just prettier.


What is left of the techniques for the second day of the workshop is the little "doo dads" and the highlighting on her sleeve which I totally forgot to do today.
