Silverpoint Drawing
4×6″ gray-green prepared paper

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 on paper that I prepared with a gray-green tone and heightened with white charcoal. The silver lines will tarnish over time to a metallic sepia tone.

See other silverpoints of bells on my posts of Dec. 7 and Dec. 12.

SOLD. Please ask about similar work.
