Just another weblog

I am fascinated by eyes – animal or human – and I saw this riveting set of eyes in a magazine yesterday. I started with the eyes and drew a face around them. I saw EXPERIENCE and wanted to reflect that by the age, ruggedness and corregated texture of the face. I did a quick gesture like sketch in graphite and then used an aquabrush and a watercolor crayon to paint this.


I wanted a tentative skeptical expression and loved the squinty left eye I got.

  1. Very intense. You definitely did what you set out to do. Nice.

  2. Thank you. I love finding faces to love. They always seem to be old and wrinkled like mine!
