Eye to eye is a watercolour and pencil detail. As we look eyeball to eyeball with ourselves in the mirror who is looking at who? As we look into the eyeball of a portrait, no matter when it was created, who are you looking at? The eye of the sitter or the eye of the painter? Are we looking through our eye to the eye of the sitter or through the painters eye and back again? Or all of them?
