Silverpoint Drawing
6.5×8.5″ blue-gray prepared paper

After all these years it may seem hard to believe, but each time I begin a silverpoint drawing or a painting, it’s as if for the first time. I’m not fixed as to how to proceed with lines or colors though some lines and brushstrokes just feel natural. The spontaneous marks quickly carry the feelings and info that are riding on them and a flow happens.

Silverpoint is a drawing made with a silver stylus on a prepared surface. Some of the earliest silverpoints date back to the 12th century. It was used extensively during the Renaissance era throughout Europe by artists Durer, Holbein, Raphael, DaVinci, Van der Weyden to name only a few.
