Life drawing salon: Pisanello and silverpoint

Until the late 15th century, silverpoint was the standard medium in which artists trained to draw the human body. Inspired by Pisanello, who used silverpoint extensively in preparation for his paintings, explore the properties and constraints of this technique and enjoy an opportunity to slow down the drawing process and build up form in subtle tones.
