The Elemental

Silverpoint on gray-toned card, highlighted with white:

The Elemental, 2009, silverpoint on card, 10" x 8".

An otherworldly being with a gaze that absorbs light, rendered in a smoky ('sfumato', as they used to say) technique.

I at first thought that using silverpoint on a gray-tinted ground would be an exercise in futility, but it worked out quite well.
