My best friend – until she saw this – Silverpoint on Acrylic Gesso in a Watercolour Moleskine

Still trying to get to grips with this technique. Its good for fine lines but, since the lines have to be straight, its hard for me to create shadows. There is no possibility of blending these lines together – everything is permanent and my cross hatching is not all that great. I’m also experiencing the same problem that Joe had a few post ago with the scanner not picking out the softer areas. (What a moan I am). John Stremikis has suggested photographing the thing and this might be something to work on. Anyway, its good fun – I think. Next stop is to try this on fine details in buildings. Watch this space.
