Damaged Gold and silverpoint drawing

This shows how easy it is to damage a metalpoint drawing. This was one of the first metalpoint drawings that I did, and when almost completed I put too much pressure on my point and tore through the paper. I tried to correct it by using coloured pencils over the background, but couldn't mend my mistake.
