Learn how to paint eyes that are expressive of emotion. In this workshop, we will be focusing on how to make eyes that express happiness, sadness, anger, and surprise. We will take an in-depth look at the structure and form of the eye, as well as the anatomy responsible for conveying emotions. Taught from the perspective of oil painting, but students familiar with other painting mediums may use these instead.
