This is one of the very first posts in my blog: The Art Fly Daily Paintings and Silverpoint Drawings by Norine Kevolic. I’m new at blogging and learning as I go so it would be great to have friends along on the journey.

In my compositions, I love using Natural elements along with something human-made – like the glass sphere in this painting. The natural elements may be the beach stones that I’ve collected from the shores of Scotland and New England, seedpods, shells, thorns, bamboo, feathers, bones… The human-made objects may be clear glass spheres, optical lenses, or beautiful old tools and rusted metals. It all started with a few stones that I collected from the beach at Findhorn, Scotland about a dozen years ago!

SOLD. Please email me if you are interested in something similar to this painting.

In my compositions I love using elements from Nature along with human-made objects. The natural elements may be stones, thorns, seedpods, cinnamon bark, bamboo, bones…while the human-made objects may be glass spheres, optical lenses, or rusted old tools…

“Resting” is a drawing that was created using a silver stylus on prepared paper – a medium known as Silverpoint. Silverpoint pre-dates the pencil as a drawing medium and reached its height in the Renaissance era, though some early drawings date to the 12th century. Tones are built up gradually through much cross-hatching and layering of lines. Over time the silver will tarnish to a metallic sepia tone. I prepared the paper with a gray-green tone; highlights are white charcoal. To learn more about Silverpoint please visit my website.
