  3. Architectural and landscape renderings in Byzantine iconography, including background shadow and highlighting techniques, plus inverse perspective.
  4. Festal icons, involving multiple figures, landscapes, architecture, furniture, vegetation, and animals.
  5. Construction of heads, figures, and analysis of whole compositions, sacred geometry and proportion.
