My art class, taught by Chester Arnold, has started up. We're working with marble dust rabbit glued onto birch board, among many other new materials. I thought I'd try silver point (drawing with a piece of silver wire instead of a pencil or pen). So I drew two Easter eggs I painted a few years ago. The eggs are sitting in a Sam Wilson ceramic bowl to which I had glued snails, small plastic jewels and turquoise pieces. The bowl is next to a marble I've had since I was ten. But, once the drawing was done, I thought it needed more - so started to add watercolor. Then I experimented with a new Golden gel medium and added some globs of gold. All of this made the silver line art disappear. Hopefully in a few weeks the silver will tarnish and get darker. If not, I might have to go over the drawing again with ink.
