The seventh pass at this icon fixed a few things and made a few other things more complicated. I smoothed out some of the rough details in the throne and in the gilding. Christ's halo looks less like a "deflate-gate" football.
I added detail to the faces, but they sure do look strange. Mary is contrary, and here eyeless mask looks disturbing. Jesus looks like a Klingon trying to imitate Justin Bieber in a karaoke bar. I don't have the skill yet to keep the bits and pieces of the face from floating around unpredictably. I suppose if I painted more slowly, I would not run into this problem. Next week, I will fix it as best as I can. There's still many coats of paint that need to be applied.
