Aren't abstinence and chastity kinda the same thing? If so, then you're either missi the angel fot temperance the opposite of gluttony or you're missing the angel of charity the opposite of greed. I'm not even sure what the angel of liberality is.

Where did you find information on the seven archangels? I'm writing a novel on the seven heavenly virtues and everyone I look for their corresponding angels they're always different or mixed up.

Truthfully, there is no real 'correct' information to look up on the virtues. There ate many, MANY different views of who and what they are based on different faiths and view points. My own characters that I have depicted here are based on the Kabbalah, Jewish mysticism. But Christianity and Islam each have their own versions as well. I recommend researching a bit into all 3 till you find something that suits your story. Angels a to z is a great place to start. I also enjoy reading straight from the Apocrypha, the Book of Enoch and The Dead Sea Scrolls (my fav translation is by Geza Vermes)

Okay, well thank you for that information. Hopefully I'll find something that's suited for my story.

Abstinence and Chastity are the same. Temperance is another one. I'm sure you've heard this before but just saying. The watercolour is fantastic though. :)
