An online exhibition by Deryck Henley.

These oils are all created during lockdown over the past year with models around the world, over zoom.  All the models have posed for at least one of my online sessions and as an extra thanks, 10% of any sale will go to the model.

Icon Painting Monday Online Class

Icon Painting Monday Online Class

Monday 26 April
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Classes run every Monday apart from some Holidays. You can join us any Monday.

The main focus of this workshop is on helping you to find your own personal style. To help you develop creative practice and find the confidence that you need to make creativity a part of your daily life.

It is an ongoing Class but students are guided individually through the process of creating an Icon.

Not recommended for complete beginners but if you have some experience drawing or painting but not Icon painting please contact me and we can discuss if it will be suitable for you.

You will be guided through all the stages of creating an Icon. You will be supported in conveying your own ideas and a personal style.

Peaceful music played in between feedback will help you come to a quiet and meditative place.

You will deepen your understanding and practice of the principles of the egg tempera technique which include:

  •  The composition used in icon painting
  • Icon styles including Byzantine and Russian
  • Preparation of egg yolk binding medium
  • Making your own paints from dry pigments
  • Working with thin layers
  • Egg tempera brushwork
  • Dry brushwork
