Symphonist 5

Symphonist_5_web

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.

A Series of Cross Hatch Drawings

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a series of cross hatched drawings. It started out as a test of some paper I found in the back of my paper rack called #234 Paris Bleedproof Paper for Pens by Borden and Riley. I have a habit of picking up tablets of paper that look promising and stashing them away for later. I really love this paper for Pigma Micron markers. It’s like the two things were made to go together. So, like potato chips, one followed the other. Here is what I’ve done so far.
