For me, the most compelling aspect of icon art aesthetics is the dynamic plasticity of a drawing. Never can I start a work process with the complete, predefined concept. The drawing line herself hints at the development of an image, if only you can sense it, feel its vivid motion and delicate plastic nuances. Despite of this, I follow an icon painting canon, though I never know what the outcome will look like.
