The Eyes Have It

I decided to take a wee break from copying Sargent's portrait drawings and drew some eyes in one of my many, little, unfinished, sketchbooks.  I think I mentioned drawing eyes in a previous post, saying that my "models" came courtesy of Newsweek Magazine.  The models are perfect, they never complain, no matter how long it takes me, they remain very still, and they never even blink!  What could be better?

Today I just might draw some schnozzes to accompany them while I watch the Tigers play ball.... I sure hope they do better than they've been doing lately!

Great way to practice! Thought of us today at Christie's Impressionist and Modern auction preview. I snapped a photo of a fabulous charcoal or grapgite portrait drawing by VanGogh. Those guys were sooooo good.

These are brilliant eyes, Nancy - and what a good idea to use such kind and patient models to practise on! Must try that :)

Nancy,

I am sitting here reading your blog with Morgan sketching beside me. We both think your eyes are really nice.

How's Abby?

How 'bout those Tigers?!
