    Bastian,
    I wanted to know the technique to paint the eyes. They are outstanding.
    The whole paintwork on the bust is exceptionel.

    I too love the eyes, but the sculpting around them really makes the bust, he looks wise

    Many thanks for the complements.
    I try to explain the technique to these eyes.
    First of all, one reason for this impressive look is the blue colour.
    Starting the painting job I paint a greyish white eyeball.
    Allow to dry thoroughly.
    Then surround the eye with a burnt umber.
    In the corners and at the bottom I paint some slightly reddish tint.
    Then a black dot as round as possible. Leave to dry. Then I paint the colour of the iris (blue here), here are a minimal black edge. The blue hue of the iris I have brightened slightly downwards. Sickle-shaped. If thoroughly dry I paint the black pupil. Often do not take a brush, instead of the brush I take a needle. I dip the needle in the black colour and then set it at the center of the iris.
    When previously everything was completely dry, you can also wash up everything if you managed it not a first time. Start the next trial after drying.
    If everything is dried again. I took some white colour (with brush or needle) and made this reflex points. Here's something from the top right of the pupil.
    Finally, I covered the eyeball with gloss varnish.
    That's it. Happy painting
    Cheers
    Bastian
