The hands got coated in that black glaze that I used on the sky to darken it, so I’ve got to rework them with a layer of white. Once the white is complete I’ll get into a re-rendering with Van Dyke brown, then follow the same method I’ve used on all the other bones, finding warms and cools with the Raw Sienna and Cobalt Blue. Not enough time to get anything substantial done, running to the Getty again today to see those icons again, so I’m hoping to get a bit more done now I’m back in the studio.

At the Getty I saw that lovely gilded panel with the floral pattern work on the clothing that I liked so much – it’s still the highlight of the icon collection for me.
