Eyes in Pencil

 

Hello Friends!

This is for the second class this week in Paint Your Heart & Soul. Our instructor was Saskia van Drunen.

She showed us how to use Strathmore Toned Tan paper. The tan paper is for showing the midtones. We only used a mechanical pencil which I don’t normally draw with. To add the shading we used a blending stump which I never seem to think of when I am drawing either. But I will now! Lastly, we used a white charcoal pencil for the lightest areas. Unfortunately, my whitest areas look bluish in the photo, because it is a foggy day outside which affects the light.

The things I liked about this lesson were:

1) She showed us that eyes are all different shapes depending on the person’s expression.

2) She pointed out that eyelashes look more realistic when they are drawn in clumps, not all the way around the eye.

I enjoyed learning how to draw expressive eyes with Saskia. She explained things very well.

Have a wonderful day! 😀

 

 

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
