a new icon depicting St Mary Magdalene

based on the icon by Br Robert Lentz OFM.He is my favourite iconographer. 

adding the background colours,the main colour in this icon is going to be red, so I want the gold to have a bluey greeny hue to off set and highlight the reds. 

the gold is so lovely.
