Eye Study, 4 x 4 inch oil on panel
© 2013 Kathleen Coy
It's funny that this painting is the same size as the mugshot paintings. It felt good to paint a three inch eye and really get into the details, rather than a half inch tiny eyeball. This was all painted with a flat brush, focusing on skin tones and reflected light, and took about an hour. And no, this is not my eye, but now I totally want to do one of my eye.
