Drawing with Silver

" Windows to the Soul"
3" x 9"

I've made a couple of out-of-state trips since my last post. That's put my zebra drawing on hold since it was too large to travel with me. So, I decided to work on a small piece while away. I didn't get much time to work because of having such a great time visiting family, but I did manage to get this little silverpoint drawing done. The model is my youngest daughter. I liked the idea of cropping in close to emphasize her eyes. I also liked how the silverpoint gives the drawing a hazy, ethereal feel. I'm looking forward to seeing how this drawing evolves on its own as the silver tarnishes.
