Sunoculars by Face-Reality Sunoculars by Face-Reality
Sunoculars - 16" x 20" - March 2014 - Watercolour

Have you ever tried photographing a fair-skinned, light-eyed child? No fun at all. Constantly squinting when facing the sun, and this was no different with Robin. When I started painting this picture of her that I took when she was much younger, striking a pose she naturally assumed, she confessed to me that her eyes were usually closed, hidden behind her make-shift sun visor. I was the one who had to squint when working from this photo, at first believing that both eyes were closed, but no... one eye was open.

Thanks for looking!
