Congratulations to ARC Living Masterâ„¢ Gordon Hanley, who is featured in the July edition Australian Artist Magazine. Gordon's work is also featured on the cover.
The article details the process of creating drawings using metalpoint, the art of drawing using gold or silver. A master of this medium, Hanley demystifies the process and discusses various pieces of his work.

"Despite all of the precise, sometimes minute detail in these drawings, obtaining even tones across a large area is the single most difficult thing to achieve in metalpoint. This is because the control of stylus angle and pressure has to be faultless.... To successfully capture such a flawless complexion is a very satisfying achievement in metalpoint drawing."
