While I waited for dinner to cook this evening I threw a couple of pairs of shoes down and quickly sketched them with my unipin pen. I was quite pleased with the results, shoes are not an easy subject and my thoughtless set up procedure produced some really awkward angles but I trusted my eyes and went for it.
After dinner I added a little colour to them and viewed them through an 8x10" matt, I thought they would make interesting and affordable additions to my GladRagz series as well as great card designs.
I have chosen to gift all of my GladRagz works with female names as titles, naming a painting can be a tricky business but tonight my task was made easier by my CD player. I decided to name each piece after the vocalist of the song that was playing while I sketched.
'BETTE' after Bette Midler
Song: 'I think it's going to rain today' - Beaches original soundtrack
'ARETHA' after Aretha Franklin
