Did you know that silverpoint pre-dates the pencil as a drawing medium and reached its height during the Renaissance? This drawing was done with a silver stylus; I prepared the paper with a gray-green tone, and heightened the drawing with white charcoal. The lines are actually silver and will tarnish over time to a metallic sepia tone. To learn more about Silverpoint please visit my website by clicking on the link at right.
