Interested in learning Byzantine Iconography? This is a rough overview of the curriculum for the iconography video tutorials I am producing on Patreon with the aim of making a series of video tutorial courses on various aspects of Byzantine iconography, starting from freehand drawing and progressing to painting with the proplasmos and underpainting techniques. I'm currently working on the fifth drawing tutorial. The exact order of the videos may change and I may add additional videos depending on what students’ need are. Without your support this can't happen! Please click the button below to become a Patron and pass this on to anyone interested in learning Byzantine Iconography or who might be interested in supporting this project.

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".

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!
