Green eyes

Meet green eyes.  subtitled  'The girl with the world in her eyes'.  All focus was on her features in this minimalistic painting.  No need for face shape, background, or skin tone.  Her hair is just hinted at as she looks over her shoulder.
I tried to indicate the roundness of her eyeballs.  They are just glassy orbs after all.  You need to be quite brave to use color in the white area of the eyes, when everything else is startlingly white.  this started me off on a series of minimalistic paintings.  This first one is my personal favourite.
