I started on this portrait of this little boy tonight.
Someone asked me once where I start. I almost
always start with the eyes, because if the eyes
are not right, then the whole thing will not work.
I like drawing the eyes; the expression is usually
captured in them. "Windows to the soul"...
This little boy has some beautiful brown eyes. I will
continue on him tomorrow.
