A Close Eye

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago on Wanderlust (or probably longer than that; time is FLYING this year), Kasia challenged us to work BIG - on a bigger surface that we would usually work on.

I didn't want to do a canvas, and I didn't have time for a messy session in my craft room this weekend, but I decided to challenge myself to work in a different scale from what I'm used to, and fill a whole page of my A4 art journal with something small ...

It was indeed a challenge, but a thoroughly enjoyable one. I used only coloured pencils, so it's not at all mixed media, but it was really good exercise for my observational skills. After nearly giving up on it a couple of times, I was eventually happy with the end result.

Makes quite a contrast to all the miniatures I've been making recently :o)

Thanks for visiting my blog today, see you again soon!

Wow, this is amazing Annie! Really-really good and totally beyond my own abilities! Love the colour variation in the iris and the curvature of the eye lashes. Very realistic!

Your artistic skills continue to amaze me Annie! I love that you are brave enough to tackle anything and stick at it long enough to achieve competency and great skills. Brava!
