Painting - Tempera,wood Panel
The icon is handpainted on wood panel with tempera.
The wood panel has been prepared by gluing a piece of cloth to it, then several layers of gesso have been applied. When the gessoed panel has dried completely, the surface has been carefully sanded and polished to a marble-like smoothness. The board is now ready to paint on.
The paint layers are applied, beginning with the darkest underlying colors and finishing with the lightest ones.
To protect the image against dust and water it has been varnished with several layers.
