Default My first et

This is my first et. It is a work in progress of an icon, painted on a 5X7" piece of clay board. I initially coated the board with three coats of titanium white et but I must have applied them too thick as the ridges of the undercoat show thru onto the face especially. I have a long way to go to finish but would appreciate any comments or crits at this point. Thanks, Gene

Gene,

Nice job for being your first egg tempera. I don't find the ridges bothersome at all. I like how you have handled the white shirt and the rendering of the face. She has a comtemplative gaze which I enjoy.

Alex

It has classic icon form yet a modern edge. I like it.

Thanks Alex and DLH for the comments. I'm glad to know that I am on the right track. My feeling is that working on an Icon is somewhat easier than working from nature or from a photo in that one works from a previously painted image...much of the guess work is done already. The painting technique is a challenge though but a lot of fun.
