Silverpoint Drawing
5×6″ green-gray prepared paper

The fleeting beauty of flowers inspired this dreamlike drawing.

“Daffodil” was drawn with a silver stylus in a medium known as silverpoint, which was used extensively during the Renaissance era. Tones are built up with layers of lines and much patience. The silver metal lines will tarnish over time to a warm sepia tone.

I prepared the paper with a pale gray-green tone, then used white ink for highlights. To learn more about Silverpoint please visit My Website.
