This is a drawing of eyes, created with a combination of mediums, such as pens, markers, paint pens, watercolor, and multiple layers of laminate. A variety of vivid colors were used to build up the eyes and the surrounding facial structure with washes of color and energetic lines. Each layer of laminate allowed for greater depth of features to be added without much blending of color and shapes, allowing for an extremely crisp and vivid final drawing. The eyes are drawn on 3″ x 5″ paper.

    You are the master of eyes. (Of that there is no doubt. ) I’m interested in knowing more about the ‘laminate’ you frequently mention. What exactly do you use?

    Thank you Vikki, I do enjoy drawing eyes a lot.

    I got a great deal on a used laminator and laminate that a local business wasn’t using anymore… this one. And I’ve always wanted to see what kinds of stuff I could laminate. I mean, who hasn’t?! Too bad the laminate is so expensive, but I can probably squeeze some fun out of it for a few months before running out.

    Wow! That’s the real thing. I thought you were talking about a laminate medium that you painted over and then worked layers on top. Very cool.

    I recently bought a large butcher block roll of paper (no wax on the back side) that will last me for the rest of my life! I’ve been doing all my sketches on it. It’s just a gigantic roll of white paper- kindred to heavy bond in appearance.

    Lou wanted a drawing I had done…and I was so embarassed. It was on the butcher block paper, but I sent it to him! He framed it and seemed to really enjoyed it.

    lol, yea it’s the real deal!

    Great idea with the paper roll! I’m hearing that your great art and ability to connect to viewers isn’t limited to a specific medium or canvas! 😉

    Thanx Michael, for appreciating my comments!!! In fact, iv alwys loved to imagine and view life to the depth since a very very young age. I always loved art since childhood n would imagine that one day I would draw/sketch n paint n become an artist!!!
    But, have started thinking seriously since last year…as a hobby…Wish this dream of mine is fulfilled….n then maybe i will be able to show you my work someday by God’s Grace.
    But for the moment i really like that a great artist like you like my insights!!!!
