Eileen Kennedy     Drawings

While these drawings are studies for egg tempera paintings, I consider them to be finished works of art. I draw from life, from photographs, from my imagination, or some combination of the three. The silvery gray drawings are made using silverpoint, a technique used in the Renaissance and earlier before the discovery of graphite as a drawing medium. These drawings are made using a piece of silver wire on coated paper. Just as your silverware tarnishes, so do these drawings, assuming a darker, warmer patina over time.
