3rd Lesson - Donkey

I always like to paint the eyes of an animal early on.  They're usually the most important feature of an animal painting and gives you a head start in how the painting will look.  The eyes were very dark.  They have a slight brownish tinge with a dark (black) pupil and I flicked a bit of light blue highlight in them to give them sight.  While I had the darks mixed on my palette, I then went to the nostrils.  They are very dark against the centre and gradually lighten up as they emerge into the light.
