Painting St Philoumenos step-by-step.
Drawing an initial sketch on my tablet. Painting icons of contemporary saints is difficult as people are familiar with their photos. The tricky part is maintaining their form in the byzantine style so that they are recognizable without simply painting a naturalistic portrait in a "byzantine manner".

This is a sample preview of my second Patreon Tutorial that will be posted at the end of the month. here you will see how to draw the face in the dynamic frontal pose on curved axes.
I've decided to make a distinction in the rewards between Students and Supporters so that Patrons can choose the rewards that suit them best.I have added a $25 level for students who will have access to the time-lapse sketch videos that will become a regular feature and help to show the process of drawing.
I have also added a $50 level for Students who will be given a monthly drawing assignment that I will critique and correct. As it is impossible for me to answer everyone's questions about iconography, this tier will be limited to 5 places and the critique commentary will only concern the homework assignments.
I may in future add a further exclusive level for advice and critique on Patron's personal work depending on the demand.
Thank you for your support!
The first of my Patreon Iconography Tutorials has been uploaded! This is a series of tutorials that begins from the basics of the line and will progress to painting in tetrachrome and underpainting techniques. The purpose of these tutorials is to make iconography lessons available to those who can't afford or don't have access to workshops. However, making these tutorials requires an enormous amount of time, materials, equipment and effort, and like all artists, I still need to pay the bills and rent. That is where Patreon comes in . It is a platform for supporting the work of artists and creatives whose work you enjoy. I'm using it as a means of supporting this Iconography Tutorial Project to make tutorials available for you. For as little as $5 per month you can have access to these tutorials and can watch these techniques as many times as you need to.
This video is a preview of the first tutorial that is now available. Please support this project so that I can keep it going. Thank you.
