“Inside Out”

Posted on by Norine

Silverpoint Drawing
5×4.5″ blue-gray prepared paper

This seashell was drawn with a silver stylus on specially coated paper, a Renaissance-era medium known as Silverpoint. Layers upon layers of lines become tones, and over time the silver gradually tarnishes to a metallic sepia. The drawing is heightened in white ink.

See more silverpoints in The Art Fly archives, and on My Website. Please email me to purchase this.
