Thanks to Deb I decided to begin another blog chronicling the progress of my upcoming Icon Workshop that begins tomorrow. Check out St. Paraskeva Icon Studio. That's where I'll be for the next week, but I'll leave a note here so you can find me. Come on over~

Do the students start with that base picture (no face, hands etc.) already there and continue to paint? Very interesting. What a wonderful talent and hobby they are learning. Wish I were there too.

No, Micki, the students began with a blank, white board. It is a birch board, with many layers of gesso, a layer of linen, then many more layers of gesso. The pattern is traced on with carbon paper, then the base colors are layed in. I will do a more in depth post about the process later this week. Thank you for your interest!
