These Old Shoes

These Old Shoes–Sketchbook Project
Some more shoes….they’re fun to draw. Blank ballpoint with some blue details. They took about three hours. Funny, I have patience to work on a sketchbook picture that long, but a big painting on canvas? Not so much, lol! I suppose there’s always a feeling that the canvases are serious, too dear. No room for error. Do we get too attached? Afraid to make mistakes? I don’t find much joy in painting lately, but this sketchbook project is helping me find joy in art again.¬†

This Girl’s Shoes

Sketchbook Project- This Girl’s Shoes
A new sketch for the Sketchbook Project. ¬†This one was fun! I was inspired by Andrea Joseph and her wonderful shoes in ballpoint. I started out in black ballpoint, and then thought “they’re so colorful, I can’t leave that out”, so I did the color accents in colored pencil.
These shoes make me smile, and they also make me about 6 feet tall. My husband hates when I wear them because he’s only 5’9. He’ll look up at me, make a face and sigh….:)
