Painting of Professor Iain Stewart at UNSW 2014. Anne L.P-B-5

A very small, pointed brush with indigo paint was used to lessen the size of the white reflections in the eyes, and then to put in some eyelash shadows and reflections in almost-black. You can see where I have had to repaint around the eyes many times to try to get them looking right – the canvas grain is no longer visible!
