It’s Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday. This copy of the angel from the ‘London version’ of his Virgin of the Rocks was drawn in 2012 in silverpoint.
The copy did not turn out to be quite an exact one and inevitably has something of my own in it. I very much enjoyed silverpoint, though I haven’t returned to the technique again since this drawing. Perhaps I should.
This drawing now belongs in the collection of my friend and fellow artist, Claudia Hahn.
