hoi

probeer eens online te komen en "mongo mell " aan de haak te slaan. hij's een getallenteerd schilder en zal je zeker wel de nodige tips kunnen geven.
Om een voorsmaakje te krijgen kan je zijn artikels eens lezen.

vriendelijke groeten

Oil paint would normally take 12 - 24 hours to dry before you could do anything to it.

As for the eyes if you re trying to paint them in such a way that the figure is looking straight, more often than not you ll end up with cross eyes. Try painting the eyes in such a way that the irises are looking a bit to the side.

Hopes this helps.
