After a bit more silverpoint, I dropped in some beginning color. Looking forward to the Phthalo blues from Kremer but current stock will do for now. I like how the head is coming but the tail... ah, it looks rather chewed. It may be due for a scraping and sanding if recovery goes as expected.
I seemed to notice the lifting of silverpoint with the first coat of tempera. I somehow had it pegged as more resilient but it took a quick light first coat to hold it well in place.
