Archangel Michael – original drawing with silver leaf

Captivated by their stunning stillness, beauty and meaning i started a series depicting the Archangels – the high rank heavenly messengers, inspired from Byzantine iconography. The series started as digital drawings, printed on watercolor paper, mounted on wood
and continued with graphite drawing, acrylic painting and silver leaf (the silver leaf area is the square on the wing, which reflects light beautifully in certain lighting)
This artwork features Archangel Michael- the fighter
The artwork measures 14″x14″ and 1.5″ deep, done on wood.
