Through the Iris IV WIP completed
16” x 16” Pencil on Arches Hot Press water color paper mounted on maple
This is the last of the pure eye drawings…unless I do another one
seriously though it has run its course and I have gotten what I needed from it, which is my interests in observing and understanding aging skin and the structure of the Iris I still am interested in this but it’s time to do a full face and torso in this technique and size. This drawing was completed as one of the three (Through the Iris II, III and IV) which will be on exhibit at ArtPrize 2013 Starting September 17.
This drawing was fairly complex the white hair was a challenge for sure, not erasing but leaving the white of the paper and then drawing into it is very time consuming but gives it by far the most natural look. I want to thank Dr. Mark Francisco for molding and letting me make him look a bit older. No wonder I get no commission work?!
Thanks for the good questions and comments through this wip-feel free to ask more I’m always happy to answer. Here is a link to show the size of this drawing.nimra.deviantart.com/art/Throu…
