Silver Point Drawing


I've been doing more drawing recently, trying out different mediums, and I thought I would try out the ancient technique of silver point. Siver point is, as the name suggests, simply drawing with a sharpened piece of silver onto paper that has been prepared with a coating of gouache to impart a tooth. For my first atempt I sketched Dale sat knitting whilst watching TV. A rare occasion that finds her sat still!
