Silverpoint Drawing
6×6″ buff prepared paper

Glad to be posting again after a series of major computer glitches…

I found these exciting striped stones on Wells Beach during a recent trek to the southern Maine coast. After a few days of rest and relaxation I couldn’t wait to get back to my studio to work on some painting compositions starring my pocketful of beauties.

Silverpoint is a drawing rendered with a wire of silver metal that is typically inserted in a holder. With time, the metallic silver lines tarnish to a warm brown/gray. I prepared the drawing paper with a buff color, and highlighted the silverpoint in white ink and white pastel. Check out my custom-made silverpoint box and tools by clicking here.

Please email me for purchase details.
