How to Paint Eyes in Oil

My little faces are only about 1/3 the size of life-size, so these eyes can be very tricky to paint - one blob in the wrong place in the wrong colour or tone and it is hard to correct.  So, after having filled in all the white canvas, leaving it to dry and confident in the shape and size, I am going over it again.  When you mix up the colour and tone that you want, just dab the colour on a paper towel to get an idea of how it looks before you apply it to the board.  A little flow medium added to the mix can help as well.
