Silverpoint, part two

maple leaf 12-13 gentian 12-13

A couple of small botanical exercises using silverpoint. This technique looks deceptively simple but it is in fact very complex. Even the slightest contact with the paper makes a mark, and there is no erasing! You really have to think before you do. It will take lots of practice to master this one. But I do like it.
