Eye of the beholder

Here's what I have been working on this morning.  I am putting together a prompt for Our Tangled Lives about looking through the world through old eyes.  I have always been challenged by drawing facial features - especially eyes.  So I decided to start working on overcoming this challenge.  I drew the eye lightly in graphite, and then worked this in colored pencil.  I think this might actually grow on me - I am really pleased with what I did.  I think the real challenge will be in creating a matching eye!!!  Just to show how time consuming this is - I used 12 different colors of colored pencil to create this one eye.


  1. Wow, Pat! You did fantastic! Very realistic and you can see all the details!

  2. Your eye is really outstanding.
