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.


Silverpoint on gesso-coated paper, 115 x 110mm.

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.
