Lots of drawing lately – of bells and whistles! I love the negative space of these objects, the dark hollow…more to come.
“Single Bell” was drawn with a silver stylus – a drawing medium known as silverpoint, which pre-dates the pencil. This technique was used extensively during the Renaissance era, though some of the earliest silverpoints date back to the 12th century.
I prepared the paper with a gray-green tone and heightened the drawing with white charcoal. To learn more about Silverpoint and to see the box and tools that I made please visit my website.
