I don’t spend much time at home but when I do, I get bored very quickly and this is what I come up with! I’ve always had a fascination with eyes, both in drawing, painting and photography so have decided to explore this further and of course my kids once again were my faithful models! I started my my middle son who has a perfect mix of my (blue) & my hubby’s (brown) eyes. My oldest son says they look like opals so hence the name. I will also upload my other children’s eyes as they all look like jewels to me. Apart from the selective colouring, I have only added some extra saturation and enhanced the contrast.. No actual colour changes were made. I don’t know if I’ll keep them up but will definitely get them in a card at least! Enjoy.
