Profile in Shadow silverpoint

A new silverpoint on a gray-toned ground:

Profile in Shadow, 2009, silverpoint on gray-toned, prepared card, 10" x 8". Heightened with white pastel pencil.

I have quite a collection of heads done in silverpoint now. On the one hand, I find that the human head provides endless expressive possibilities. On the other hand, it starts to become a repetitive exercise to do too I'll probably be investigating some other themes from now on...
