Silverpoint Drawing
6.5×6.5″ lavender prepared paper

“Bunny” is drawn in silverpoint: a drawing medium that was used extensively during the Renaissance era – though some of the earliest drawings date to the 12th century. A stylus of silver metal, inserted in a holder, is used on a specially coated surface. I prepared the paper with a lavender tone and heightened the drawing with white charcoal. Over time the silver lines tarnish to a metallic sepia tone.
