“Peace Lily”

Posted on by Norine

Silverpoint Drawing
7×5″ prepared paper

“Peace Lily” was drawn with a silver wire on paper that I prepared with a gray-green tone and heightened with white. This is a drawing medium known as silverpoint, which was used extensively during the Renaissance era. The term Metalpoint encompasses any metals that may be used, such as copper, gold, bronze, etc., but silver is the most popular. Over time the silver lines will tarnish to a metallic sepia tone.

To the buyer: A mat will be added to the drawing and a Silverpoint Description card will be attached.
