I've always loved anything to do with ancient Eqypt, so when the film Cleopatra came out in the 60's I was enthralled. Beautiful costumes and of course the very beautiful Elizabeth Taylor with her violet eyes. The make-up artist on that movie was responsible for a whole generation of women wearing blue eye shadow.

There is nothing quite like painting eyes. It's true that they are the windows to the soul, and whether it is an animal or people portrait, it doesn't come to life until the eyes are added. This is a follow on from "Beautiful Eyes", another postcard sized painting.
