More Eye & Nose Practice

 Left eye
 Right eye
Warped nose

]I took a dime and drew circles for the eyes. My initial thought was to paint an eye without the lids, with the goal of getting the iris/pupil to look round using values.  But the thing to remember is the upper lid covers part of the eye so I put in upper and lower lids.

I love the eye that doesn't look to the viewer. This one has a lot of depth and a good story.

Thank you Ann,
Irina
