Slow progress on an icon is still progress. The gilding turned out reasonably well. There's a number of rough edges, but those are easy to repair.
The dark green represents the darkest shadows of the skin tones. I've also blocked out the robes with a wash of burnt sienna. While the robes will be red and blue, neither pigment lays down very easily, so a base coat will knock out the white and make the dark parts of the cloth be shadowy and deep.
