Here's a new silverpoint drawing of a feral head:
Ferocity, 2009, silverpoint on prepared ground, 10" x 8".
It's drawn on card gessoed with 2 coats -- the first one of magenta, which was too deep & rich to be really useful, the second with a pale Mars Yellow. I like the subtle texture this gives the ground.
Not intended for the silverpoint blog, which is almost done, but possibly for my upcoming show in Rhinebeck alongside my friend Jim Stevenson.
