Iconology

Iv’e got two class Icons going. This is the beginning of my John the Baptist. My instructor, who is very soft spoken but with a laser wit, wouldn’t let me do a John the Baptist with a severed head. The second icon is of Jesus Christ. It is further along with ink outline and the bole (soft fine reddish-brown clay used as a pigment) has been applied for the halo.

On Sunday, July 28, I start my class with the Prosopon School of Iconology. Yes Iconology. I’m somewhat anxious because I’ve heard that the instructor Demetri, is somewhat particular in his instruction.
