Since I first saw a silver point or metal point drawing, I've been fascinated with the medium. It's a drawing medium from ancient times. I've been too busy lately to be in the studio to work so I have been working on this little 6" x 6" Silver point when I find time. It's not finished yet but getting there. The silver will patina into a sepia color with time and it will sprinkle a little too. I think it's beautiful. This is my third one I've done and I love my new silver stylus. It's so smooth.
I went to a workshop a few months back and learned a lot about Silver Point but not enough. To draw with silver or metal, your substrate or paper has to have the correct ground on it. I know nothing about that. We are trying to get a workshop together in May that will teach the different grounds. The workshop will be in Clarksville. If you are interested, use the contact form and I'll send you some information,
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
