Silverpoint drawing of a pair of toadstools viewed from below. Similar in appearance to graphite, the piece is actually drawn in soft silverpoint. The glowing highlights are added with touches of white gouache.  Due to the nature of this medium, the silver will gradually tarnish and take on a warm patina.

 

As an environmentalist and visual storyteller working in western New York, my work is almost entirely informed by the woods and rural habitats around me. While this is constant, my love of trying new materials inspired me to explore metalpoint. This work is done in silverpoint, which is an old drawing method done by the masters including Rembrandt and Albrecht Dürer. I have the advantage of modern grounds and a premade stylus, but I think it still achieves an old-world look I admire in these historical drawings.
