Watercolor eye study by jane-beata Watercolor eye study by jane-beata
Eye study made with watercolor and pen on 250g cold-pressed paper, original is small ( 15 x 21 cm / 5.9 x 8.3 ") and was gifted to my friend before it was featured as a DD (:

Credits: Huge part of my watercolor practice and technique learning lies within very helpful videos of agnes-cecile on YouTube, I am very grateful that there are artists like her who teach people all around the world this way :heart:

A Daily Deviation! Big thanks to Natalia-Luz, ruby604 and lucid-light for suggesting and to SRaffa for featuring :heart: and of course for all the :+fav:, comments, appreciation.

I really like this one. A LOT! I'm not a big fan of watercolors BUT I really like how you make things look with them. The color scheme is great (seems random and unique, but very, very, VERY fitting for this piece) and the details are absolutely wonderful may I add!!! I must say that the colors really make the eyes pop out as well. To add to that, I would like to say that the eyes are my favorite part of this piece. It looks so real. Great work on this! Keep up the really great work! -Bailey <3

i adore the colors and the picture itself its very balanced and beautiful and the eyes are very intense. The eyes themselves are wonderful but if it were up to me i would have put more light in the eyes to me they somehow look sad even though you can tell she is smiling other than that i love them, now moving on to the page itself, i don't know what happened but the page is dirty the little specs draw the attention away from the colors and so does the paintbrush or tiny wood piece make sure you clean things up before you paint and also before you take the picture.

We're an art manufacturing company and are in need of watercolor and acrylic illustrations of animals, landscapes, florals...
If they are done in procreate or Photoshop they must have textures to make it seem traditionally hand painted.

We pay $15-$20 per piece with FULL rights to it.

They must be scanned at a minimum of 8.5x11 300dpi

If you are interested please email me lola@allpopart.com, I'll give you more feedback on what we need.
Examples of artwork here: www.wayfair.com/decor-pillows/…

Maybe you have some old pieces you wouldn't mind selling - we can do that too!

I've had this favorited for a long time - I've noticed that many other depictions of eyes kind of creep me out, but not this one. These eyes are definitely from a smiling or at least playful face. Thank you :)
