Silverpoint Drawing
4.5×9″ green/blue prepared paper

“Born” was drawn with a silver stylus (silverpoint) on fine paper that I prepared with a green/blue tone heightened with white charcoal. This drawing medium pre-dates the pencil, and was used extensively during the Renaissance era; earliest silverpoints date to the 12th century. For those who crave tonal drawings or line, silverpoint delivers!

To learn more about it, and to see the silverpoint box and tools that I made, please visit my website.
