How to Draw the Human Eye

Megan Foldenauer's avatar Megan Foldenauer

This work focuses on the human eye and all of its magnificent detail. I spent many years as a scientist studying the eye (did you know that looking at an eye is looking at someone’s brain?) and I've drawn them since I was quite young. Are they the "windows to the soul”? What can you learn when you study/render the eyes of another? What commonalities and differences can you appreciate? Through precise detail with pencil & ink, these works ask you to explore the seemingly "everyday" so you might realize that no human eye is commonplace at all.
