Not My Shoe

Lesson 5 of my online sketch and watercolor class covers Shoes. Only in my closet, all I could see were black shoes, brown shoes, grey shoes, and running shoes so dusty the original bright colors were obscured. Hubby’s shoes weren’t any more exciting than mine.

I actually shopped at Goodwill just for this lesson. I kept in mind shape, texture, and color; I wasn’t interested in the shoe size. While I was there I thought maybe I could find some colorful cowboy boots.

No. No cowboy boots at all. Curses! Foiled again.

The subject.

 

The warm up exercise. A continuous line drawing with the Tombow pen where I discovered I have a heavy hand leading to thick, thick lines.

Let’s just say that New York won’t be calling me to illustrate their new shoe line for next year.
