Let’s paint an eye together with Zarina! "For this painting I wanted to use as few supplies as possible, so you won’t have to go out and buy something new. You’ll need only 4 colours and I bet you already have them: white, red, yellow and black. The palette that we’ll be using today was created by a famous Swedish artist Anders Zorn. Your result may vary depending on the saturation of your red and yellow. However, the aim of this lesson is not to create a perfect copy of my painting but to show you how much you can do with only 4 colours."Find more information
