Mixed media eye on canvas


After doing so many eye sketches in my sketchbooks, I decided to challenge myself to go bigger and do a mixed media eye on canvas. This eye was painted a 16 x 16 canvas.

The base of the canvas was covered with crumpled wrapping tissue for texture. Then I went in with acrylic paints, watersoluble crayons, gesso and stencils before drawing/painting my eye.

At first, I struggled with blending the paint colours to create the depth in the eye. Then I went in with old faves - paint markers and acrylic ink-filled waterbrushes and it somehow came together....after a while. I think. *winks*

What do you think?
