30 Day Eye Study

#4-Inktense - 10 mins

Continuing with the 30 day eye study challenge, here are another three sketches of my own eye in my W&N heavyweight sketchbook.

#5-Watercolour - 10 mins

It's quite difficult coming up with new positions when using your own eyes as the subject so I have tried to experiment with different mediums and include surrounding parts of the face for interest.

#6-Lamy fountain pen and Noodler's ink - 15 mins

Beautiful eyes, Anita - both the paintings and the model :) I also love your lily. Sounds like a fun holiday even with the poor weather - will you be my mother too?

Thankyou for your kind and flattering comments.

Thankyou Ronell, so pleased you feel I captured an emotion in each!
