I hope everyone is staying cool on this hot, boiling first day of Summer! I haven’t quite finished my fox piece yet but I thought it would be neat to show you how the eyes of a portrait really bring it to life! I typically will do the eyes last but for the fox I couldn’t. The portrait looked really off so I needed to add them early to give myself an overall visual of the piece. Once I did, the portrait started coming together. Take a look…
It is a thrill to watch the piece liven up with every layer added. I am literally giddy when I draw eyes because each line and shadow you add makes it more real. You feel like the creature is staring right at you! It’s so exciting! I know…I’m an art/animal geek!
The piece is just about done. It just needs a few finishing touches and you’ll get to see the finished product. Keep an eye out for it! Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time,
“When I look in your eyes, I see my life.”
