 Messina,  :welcome:  to PB.  I  just love what you posted.  Much more than just eyes.  Beautiful.  Just watched this.  No PDF yet but a truly awesome lesson.  I added this 5th eye as just an experiment for a "loose eye".  Thanks tons Dennis.  Found that keeping the roundness was very hard!!!

Thanks Messina.  You seem like a pro with watercolor.  I find painting eyes in wc much harder than in oil because I'm not accomplished in "fixing"

Yes Bill--I use frisket and then when I take it off, if it sees too glaring to me, I use a very diluted wash to dull it down just a bit.

Thanks Lynn, I am off to try it now. I would never have thought of that, I had to look frisket up, but I'll use the fluid I have. Thanks again. Bill
Best wishes, Bill

 :nono:  Dennis....the alcohol soaked through the paper from a most feable attempt at some abstract. Not going to discuss the outcome of that!  :-X  Too much help from one of the four legged furry critters.  :eyesclosed:
A few red veins might just help this poor fellow.....nothing sadder than a hungover lizard...  :2funny:
