How to Oil Paint the Frog's Eyes - Lesson No.15

We used Gold and Ivory Black for the eyes.  They are the focal point for the whole painting I think.  Dab in the gold first with a fine No.1 brush then the black.  Gently dab the black back into the wet gold, breaking it up and giving the eye some shadow in the corners.  With a clean brush, use the gold again to dab back through the areas you want highlighted.  A dot of white in her eye will give her sight.  Now she's looking at you!
