New silverpoint Drawing
In preparation for my upcoming #silverpoint #workshop @wash_houston I made a quick #sketch of #alphonsemucha ‘s #portrait of his #daughter #jaroslava.
Materials included: #metalpoint with a #sterlingsilver tip, #Japanese #graphite, #gouache and #watercolor
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about traditional uses of art materials. While my methods are a bit untraditional, I’ve fallen in love with my combo of materials.
I’ll be sharing info on how to get rich drawings with layered surfaces revealing a variety of textures and finishes. ✨✨
I 💖 how #sparkly silverpoint makes a #Drawing.
Using these materials, drawings can range from matte to velvet to shimmering. Silverpoint adds some #magic that I don’t get when I just sketch with graphite. I also 💕💕 my prepared #paper that I had flown in from #florence.
If you’re in #houston there’s still time to sign up and join me for 4 classes, starting next Thursday!
