Eye Painting Portrait Commissions

The Eyes are finished, now I have to put the last finishing touches on them; the names and the varnish. Painting small names with a brush on canvas isn't easy!! I really enjoyed this commission. It started with a photo shoot with a family of 6 then some photoshop to get the iris the right size, then the painting, now the finishing. I would welcome more Eye Portrait commissions of others like these. These were done on 4x4 inch gallery wrap canvas and they look good hung in a grouping or even displayed on a table or shelf.

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
