A fascination with the eye: pages from my art journal


It's no secret that I have a fascination with the human eye. The human eye is capable of conveying a gamut of emotions with subtle variations. You can see the twinkle in someone's eye when they are happy or the sadness when they are experiencing sorrow.

This particular eye was drawn and coloured with coloured pencils. The colours were pulled from the messy misted background.


Transparent layers of colours can create a less stylized eye like this one which was painted with watercolours. Does it not look like a sad eye? Especially since I forgot to give her lower lashes and her mascara has smudged a little? *LOL*

Happy weekend friends!
