Painting Eyes...

Working on painting features.....the eyes to me are the most important feature if you want a likeness to your model. Get these right and your halfway there..

First one done with a quick sketch.....2nd one straight in with watercolour, no sketching, more delicate for a child and more what I'm aiming for....

this is an example of giving life to a picture...
the fragile nature of the eye is very much visible...
