The Eyes Have It
The baby didn't nurse at all today. Have I finally weaned my last child? I'm feeling unsentimental about it. He's taken to biting.
I copied an eye this afternoon at the office, after I'd finished the bulk of my work. I made the upper lid too big and the brow too arched. It was bothering me so I fixed it in Photoshop:
Much better, right?
I see eyes differently since I started this online portrait class. They have more shape and dimension. I can see the curve of the eye socket under the skin; the bulge of the ball under the lid.
This is what I love most about art. It transforms your senses. Even when you have to use Photoshop to get things just right.
