A Feathery Focus: Painting A Bald Eagle Portrait
Step 4: Amber Eye
Switch to the Escoda no. 8 round brush, then mix Quinacridone Gold, Gamboge Nova, Lemon Yellow, and Yellow Ochre for a bright amber color. Use this to paint the bald eagle’s iris and the edge of the beak. Next, use a more saturated Yellow Ochre to paint around the eye, forehead, head, and neck while still avoiding the highlights. Make smaller feathered textures, and paint around the other highlights for a little more color.
