Eye Practice

Not much chance to paint today but have done a few swatches of graded washes using three primaries and then this eye.  The colors used to paint the eye were Indanthrene Blue, Cerulean Blue, Quin. Rose, Cad. Red light,  Yellow Ochre and Azo Yellow.

Thank you for posting things like this. I learn so much from studying your work. This eye looks so real. I'm going to go paint something right now!
