      I’m in the process of painting this photo.  I’m having trouble with the eye color, I can’t seem to get it right.  Any advice on what oil colors to use? :wacko:

          I would start with burnt sienna as the mother color for the eyes. This is your red for the eyes.  Use combinations of ultramarine blue and primary yellow to get your hi lights (and white) and darker parts.  If it’s too red, make a little green and mix it in.  Good luck.
