Recreating a Detail from Botticelli’s “Pallas and the Centaur”

Ren eye detail

This is a 4 x 5 inch gouache painting on 79 board that I created for my illustration class. It’s a detail from “Pallas and the Centaur,” and I used a technique called “hatching” (which, unlike cross hatching, has lines flowing only in one direction.) I’m happy with how it turned out, but I’d like to explore hatching more.
