Wildlife paintings, portraits & pet portraits by New Zealand Artist Karen Neal

"Okarito Kotuku III"

Silverpoint on 300gsm Artistico Paper , Original Sold

A new challenge is the medium Silverpoint, which is an ancient form of drawing from the renaissance period, silverpoint being what was used for drawing before graphite was introduced. It is a process of burnishing pure silver metal on to a prepared ground. The silver will tarnish over time as does any silver.

Silverpoint and Scratchboard are both exacting mediums with little room for error.
