I think it's finished. I like the way her eye turned out looking so wet and shiny. I don't know how I did that! Actually, I do know how I did it. I blew the photo up on my computer screen until it was really large and every detail showed. I then placed each detail on this eye, as exactly as it was in the photo. At the same time, I don't think you could say this is a photorealistic work. I don't like capturing details that much. I try to make my paintings contain every important element, then I try to lose every single thing that isn't that important.
