Today I show you one of the classic Icons I painted last year. This is one of the versions of St George and I have used gold for the frame and to embellish parts of the painting. This one is painted with egg Tempera - as per the traditional method. I have to be very careful with this as I am always licking brush tips or putting them in my mouth the wrong end round...... not a good idea when some of the Tempera powders are highly toxic !!!... snort !!!
If you really want to see craftsmanship on a vast scale with this method, then visit some churches if you ever are in Greece. The decoration will blow your socks off !!!
Anyhoo, here's my modest piece.
