OK... this is an unfinished study but thought I would show this to you before adding the final touches. During the time, I was more concerned with the skin around the eye area but planning to adjust the eye when the final section is added.
The past few weeks, I have been reading up on a method or technique used by some portrait artist's. It is an imprimatura layer of Raw Umber, an underpainting or deadlayer with Titanium White and then layering of colour on top.
It was an interesting technique and hopefully I will have the chance to work with it again.
Eye Study is 4 X 4 inches ( 10.16 x 10.16cm )
