P&P: Her Eyes Open

Yesterday, I was a bit too excited and over organised {if that's possible} and posted the P&P Blog Party linky a day early, I'll be scheduling it next time, so it appears on Thursday :)  Here's the palette I showed you yesterday and the painting:

Today, Thursday, I wanted to show you my palette and the painting with the addition of some paint and show you the colour guide I used for mixing gray eyes, you read right, I said gray eyes, I know that in the above photo her eyes are closed, but I couldn't resit opening them today! 

Above is my palette with Skin Tones {as shown last week} & gray eye tones {mixing guide below}.

I worked some more on her hands, blocking in some of the tones, then I got distracted with painting here eyes. I think It's a much more engaging painting already, what do you think?

Above is the colour mixing palette I used as recommended in 'Color Mixing Recipe for Portraits' .  Now it's your turn, head on over to the linky and show us all your Palette & Paint.
