Beautiful work Arhistratig.

I have always loved that moment when I am about to put on the first brushstroke (in your case, the gold leaf). Magical!

Looking forward to following your progress.

The icons in your studio's gallery are stunningly beautiful. May we know more about where the studio is located, and how many icon painters work there, and in what way do you share the work done on each icon? Mention was made that after other work is done, the icon passes to the one who paints heads, for example. I have not heard previously of group efforts on icons other than very large ones. Is this a tradition?

Thank you for sharing this wonderful work with us on the forum.

Hallo everybody, thanks for warm words.
Been a hard time working, so there are some updates and more still coming.
We live in good old town of Tallinn in Estonia by the Baltic sea. Our workshop sterted about 15 years ago. We also work on icon and painting restauration, right now there are five of us.
Working stage by stage passing each operation to another is the main medieval principle of craft either in Europe so in Russia. The work is passed continuously through carpenter, gesso maker, gilder and then to painters. Sometimes, in case of small or uncomplicated work, somebody can combine duties.
I should write an article on this on my website in the "Iconpainting" division.

Thank you for this beautiful demonstration of icon painting.
I am working on a commissioned painting of a "Corporate
Angel" and can't decide if I should start from scratch and
make a new icon of a modern day angel that people of
different faiths can view and appreciate.
Any suggestions?:phew:
