(These will make really special presents for the Holidays)
This is part 1 of a 2-part series for any medium: watercolors, oils, acrylic, pastel or graphite

There is a reason that Humphrey Bogart, in the award winning 1942 film Casablanca, says the famous line at the end of the movie “Here’s Lookin’ At You Kid”!  Because that is what we humans do, we look at each other. We look into each other’s eyes, even if you are looking at a stranger (or wearing a mask) .
 As artists, when you paint a face, the eyes are the soul of the person and your painting. Paint the eyes to express the emotions of the painting and the painting will be a success. 
This class will explore how to create expressive eyes, what is important and what is not, when to hide the eyes and why. Let me help your brushes explore the eyes of humans or animals for successful paintings.
