A close study of eyes

Painted with Procreate on iPad.
A truly striking model with the kind of look that really does lend itself to art.
I wanted to honour the detail around her eyes without losing any of the appeal elsewhere. The background is somewhat incidental but adds to the pastel feel of the final piece.

Where the majority of the piece has been blended using the damp brush the eyes remain largely untouched. It's also worth noting that where the skin tones can be largely covered with just a handful of distinct colours and drawn with a broad brush, the eyes required fine detail and generally have five or six times as many colours in them. Often colours that you wouldn't expect.
This is the beauty of Procreate in that it lets you zoom in to analyse and also to apply pixel point detail.
