How to paint eyes


How to paint eyes and all the features in the next few demonstrations are painted onto an already How to paint eyesprimed pinkish oil painting paper which is cheap to buy and this also acts as a middle tone. We start off with a basic burnt umber diluted with a little turpentine and paint in the basic eye shape which fits neatly into an oval shape and paint in the round lens of the eye.


 

How to paint eyes

The eyeball is painted in with pure titanium white and the fleshy part of the eyelid with cadmium red, yellow ochre and a touch of ultramarine blue. The eye lens is painted in with a mixture of cadmium yellow, cerulean blue and a touch of ultramarine blue.


 

How to paint eyes

The pupil is laid in with a mixture of burnt umber and ultramarine blue and it is important to make the size of the pupil correct so consider the width from the outside lens of the eye to the outside edge of the pupil. The edge of the eyelid is also painted in with the same mixture but lighter.


 

How to paint eyes

The eyeball is white but from the left corner of the eyeball to the right corner it curves outwards (Towards us) so we have to interpret this through paint. I paint in a grey in the left corner of the eyeball merging it into the white and add a touch of grey to the right corner of the eyeball. Now the eyeball looks more three dimensional and finally the highlight goes in on the lens of the eye with pure titanium white.

 

How to paint eyes

The finished eye and although it is only a basic eye this simple demonstration shows steps in painting the eye, first painting in the shape of it then followed by darker tones and then light tones, the middle tones were already there with the pinkish tinted paper and finally the highlight.
