Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

Back from NY and right to work! Barely got this done. I could plan ahead of course, but that would just not be me. Below are some really nice paintings on the challenging subject of eyes. I couldn't focus on this challenge, which probably was good for me.
I find that the less I focus, the better I paint. ;-)
My daughter's reaction to posing, rolling those big brown eyes. And to seeing it painted, "freaky."

Robin, you did a great job with the EYE challenge. I think we are all spread a bit thin with summer activities. Love those big brown eyes!

Robin , they are all good, but "The Eye of the Storm" I find very intriguing!

Oh, that marvelous sideways glance that little girls are so good at delivering.
My child also is also equipped with big brown eyes. She's all grown-up now but still knows how to give the very look you captured.

I love your painting. The creamy skin tones and brushstrokes are so perfect. :)
