Another silverpoint... with a twist.

I decided to tint my gesso and highlight a drawing done with silverpoint and see how it turned out.. I was pretty happy with this one. I used a white wax pencil to highlight the legs and some white ink on the sharper details but I think in the future I’ll just go with the white ink unless the background is really dark…. the wax is too soft of a highlight.

Like I said… I’m very excited about this medium and figure I’ll most likely be doing a lot of this in the future…. I have no idea why I didn’t start this earlier.
