Spectacular Oil Paintings of Twinkling Eyes

They say that the human hand is the hardest thing to draw. While it may very well be true, it’s the eyes that draw my attention the most. Ukrainian artist Pavel Guzenko manages to capture the glimmering gaze of the human eye with his impressionist technique.

Guzenko, who lives and works in Kiev, began his artistic career as a designer but has pursued his professional path in painting since 2006.

Each painting employs the talented artist’s quick brushstrokes that aren’t concerned so much with fine detailing as capturing the dynamic essence of the image.
