“Bamboo, Cinnamon, Glass”

Posted on by Norine

Silverpoint Drawing
4.5×8″ prepared paper

From the top: bamboo, cinnamon, glass. Three of my favorite elements drawn with a rod of silver metal on yellow-orange prepared paper, heightened with white ink and pastel. With time the silver will oxidize to its characteristic warm sepia tone.

Silverpointwas used most extensively during the Renaissance era, before the graphite pencil existed. See many other silverpoint drawings of natural objects: animal skulls, seashells, flowers, seedpods – and portraits on my website.
