This is the sequel to A Brush with God, presenting for advanced beginners, and intermediate and advanced level iconographers greater detail and instructions for creating entirely new icons. One major feature of the book will be full-page format sketches that artists can use as the basis of their own icons—this is a rare and much-requested resource.

 

 

Peter Pearson is a well-known American iconographer. Through monthly icon-painting workshops around the country, plus frequent speaking engagements at diocesan conferences and other events, he has worked with thousands of students. A former Benedictine monk, he now serves as a priest in the Diocese of Bethlehem.

"This would be a wonderful gift for anyone with experience in icon-making." —Episcopal Life

"Another Brush with God provides a unique and much-requested resource. Pearson provides tips that enable readers to tackle any icon with confidence. Above and beyond all the technical details, using this book inspires readers to fall in love with iconography, engaging with this ancient discipline that will enrich them for many years. Readers, whether advanced beginners, intermediate, or advanced iconographers, may also discover how painting icons helps them to pray more deeply and that by painting the saints, they become more saintly." —SirReadaLot
