This piece, called Arco, is part of an ongoing commission of silverpoint miniatures called The Symphonists. The actual work, drawn with silver wire on archival quality illustration board, is 3″ x 4.” For fun, you can see the others below.
Symphonist No.5 is a silverpoint miniature (4″x3″). It’s one of an ongoing series. Silverpoint lends itself beautifully to miniature work due to the precision you can get with the silver stylus. Over time, this drawing will darken as the particles of silver trapped by the ground begin to tarnish.
I just finished this commission piece. It’s my first completed piece of 2014, though strictly speaking it was started in 2013.
This is the pencil under drawing for a new commission piece that I’ll be working on for the next couple of weeks. It’s called The Invisible World. I’ll be blogging some updates as it progresses.
