Lesson No.3 - The Eyes Have It!
Paint in the colour first with the highlight, then use the darker hue to go under the lid and around the pupil. I firstly do the pupil in my dark shadow colour - Ultramarine Blue and Cadmium Red - then go over the darkest darks in black when I am happy with the result (otherwise black can muddy up your colours if you introduce it too early).
Dots of highlights are added gently (usually reflecting the background colours) then just pure white on top of these.
