So about a year ago I did this
using a splatter/salt effect with watercolors (really awesome and fun, highly recommended!).
Then, sometime in the past couple months I came across
who does these amazing pieces with eyes and just portraits in general - go check her out, good stuff!
So taking that inspiration with my current techniques, I did this piece as a Christmas gift for a good friend of mine who has always loved eyes (she drew them all the time in class).
It's a little different for me but I really enjoyed doing it! I had fun blowing around the paint and adding the salt like I was casting a spell (I've been watching Merlin) xD
