Doina to go directly to the time on a prerecorded lesson put your cursor on the bottom of the screen and the time slider will pop up. Move the cursor from left to right and wherever the curor is on the slider will show a time (55.30 for instance) if you left click with that number shown then the recording will start at that point after a short pause.
Works for me.
The roundness of the eye may look distorted if the camera wasn't parallel to the painting when you took the photograph, lenses create all kinds of distortion that way.

thank you Brian. I'll try, hopefully will work for me too. Now I will be moving to the "hair". It looks challenging! Thanks again  :thankyou: for all your support, Doina

Thanks Sharon, I agree It's a good class! That green eye had a good mascara day ;)

Mea, I may try the March painting challenge and incorporate some blue in an abstract way -- maybe ...

Finally started the eyes lesson. The orange that I have is a cadmium orange, so after the first eye I added some red to it. Also my viridian is a viridian hue and it just does not seem to be the right color. Any suggestions, hints,etc would be so appreciated. I am very inexperienced painting people so I really enjoyed the eyes lesson.
