Botanical Patterns in Silverpoint & Pastel Dust

Kathie Miranda
November 6-7, 2015
N.E.S.B.A Sponsored Workshop
Princeton, Massachusetts

      Before graphite pencils, artists used metal point, a small rod of metal sharpened to a point, to make marks on a prepared surface. Silver is the most popular metal because it produces an extremely delicate pale gray line – perfect for drawing plant life. Silver is easy to apply and will tarnish over time to mellow browns. The class will include discussions of the historical context of silverpoint as well as a survey of the various studio-prepared surfaces used by the Old Masters. Using plant material as our inspiration, we will treat this old art technique to a modern twist!

Kathie Miranda is an award-winning botanical artist and educator and recently taught this workshop for the Art League in NYC.
