Working on the face…. the eyes

The eyes have been a real ‘learning experience’!!

I dyed a very pale shade of green to use for the ‘whites’ of the eyes.  BUT…. when next to the other greens…. SURPRISE!!  it looks yellow!!!   Hmmmmm….. do I want my GreenMan to have ‘yellow’ eyes???

Decided to try the other eye using white yarn.   Hmmmm….. this might be too harsh.

Then tried it using the same green as the highlight on the tip of the nose.  Hmmmm…. this might be too subtle.

So….. decisions… decisions….. yellow – white – or green?  Stepping away…. for a better sense of the over all ‘look’…… I am leaning toward the ‘yellow’.
