Teacher

Hello, I'm Julia. I'm a South African born byzantine iconographer with 16 years experience. I live and studied iconography in Greece with teachers including master iconographer George Kordis. I have also studied Theology and done post-graduate studies in Liturgics at the University of Athens.

So what are these iconography tutorials about?

This is not a standard weekend iconography workshop where you simply learn to  trace an icon and "paint-by-numbers".

1. 6.1 Drawing the Face of the Infant Christ (Frontal): way. Hello and welcome to our sixth tutorial in this lesson I lost in the Siri's Under in the face. We'll be starting the face of the infant Christ as a chance face of slightly different proportions to an adult face. The crash time is usually depicted in either a frontal post or an upward facing 3/4 powers , so we will look at both these poisons. So they started for joining the face in the frontal pose and, as always, result of that excess line. And then we will Michael Oval Shape, actually, for the charts place that could be slightly rounder than an adult place that can be the same kind of proportions as they wanted to. It's not a wider on this side, that side what could be the opposite side. And this time, instead of dividing the over into three, we're gonna divide it into half, and then we'll divide the lower section in half again, and this is gonna be on those and find the head. We add a motion its top approximately to finally draw the head could access once again my getting on the dynamic crypt access like this and I knows will come over here. And unlike the adult knows which is divided into full. The child's nose is divided into three parts. You started the top. We have to try and get a shape, length nose and they a round ball with the bottom. It doesn't usually more emphasizing child's face. Then at all face Utah beside the most moving in the direction. Access the I line will be 1/3 of the way down. Yeah, I usually the width of the nausea get on this side because the narrow sort of place and be slightly no, - The eyes are looking in this direction because the base is moving from mouth again. Come the possible will be, hopefully between the letters in the bottom of chin that is again between the top of the eye and the nose. That's really funny. You may stay just like you just used a razor and collected, and it's important to begin an iPhone numbers I cannot reiterate that even experienced, I cannot make mistakes, and we just raising start with the child's face for the normal child, hit it out of proportion with the rest of the body, the neck one. Start over here given the baby a very technique. It started about corners of the eyes way have a basic infant Christ space. 2. 6.2 Drawing the Face of the Infant Christ (3/4): the second face will do is the upward facing 3/4 pose. So again, with access line, we don't the access for the angle of the face oval. And this time it should be equal on both sides. We divided in half off again. We found a 3/4 line excess. Good on. Well, we find with 3/4 line the 1/3 line dominoes. Actually, the eyes will be. And this is where that the Indians between the eyes and the chief forms I didn't. The bulb was just more emphasized. That and at all. Nice. - Come here. - Normally classed control. We're looking at that. Yeah, but he might look in it. Have you? Okay, way. Find out between the trip, Get the bottom line in. This line is for the access, and the side of the mouth is wide on this side. No, I usually miss for you'll see that on the infant Christ cheeks often would be chubbier than out on a medal face. Now, here we saw in the Funchal Pars that the hair is the length of the nar's. But in this case Oh, no horizontal access. The hit is gonna be off face nickel here. - Okay ? - And here we have the crash child's face in the advice and 3/4 bars way. Yeah,
