To work in silverpoint is to meditate. It takes patience, and layers and layers of lines. I enjoy unwinding with this Renaissance-era drawing medium which is simply a silver wire inserted in a holder that is drawn across a slightly abrasive surface, leaving lines of silver.
The egg shaped stone with its oval bands matched the contour of the egg. I started in on the drawing, relating the two forms and forgetting about all else… I used white charcoal to highlight the finished drawing.
