Oh, Those Eyes – December 23, 2009

Oh, Those Eyes

2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

Are you tired of my fascination with Possum’s eyes, yet?  *giggle*  This is the last one, I promise.

I have been having fun painting her beautiful eyes.   She kinda reminds me of a gremlin, instead of a cat, in this one.  I really enjoy going for the liquidness of the eyes, while getting that shadow from the brow or eyelid, whichever it may be.

About George Jean Nathan

George Jean Nathan, the acerbic American drama critic, was renowned for what he called destructive theater criticism, which helped shape a more serious theatrical community and paved the way for modern critics. He was born in 1882 in Indiana. He and H.L. Mencken coedited the magazines Smart Set and The American Mercury. Although he found little to like in the theater, he became a fierce champion of the playwrights he did appreciate, including Eugene O’Neill and Sean O’Casey. He died in 1958.
