Santa #3 (2014)

I especially like the beautiful eyes on this Santa. When painting a face, you choose which eye will be the more finished eye. I like that one to have something special: a glassier look, small color changes in the iris to make it look more alive, a brighter highlight etc. This Santa's eyes seemed to follow me as I stepped back and forth to evaluate the painting's progress. Do the eyes follow you as you look at the post?
