Learn how to draw/paint eyes, human or animal from someone who knows eyes...an ophthalmologist (retired)! Come with your paints, your pencils and good photographs of eyes (your photos or cut from magazines). We will learn the anatomy, how to draw an eye, first with pencil, and then put some life into them with color. I will work in watercolor, but you can choose your medium. We will start with a lesson, then a demonstration and finally set to work to improve those faces. Without a beautiful and interesting eye, a portrait suffers. Bring your own painting or drawing equipment of your choice.
