The Old Mill by Jean's House



I took another shoe break to paint for a Daily Paintworks Challenge created by Jean Nelson. I think I need lots and lots of landscape practice.

Reflecting on Reflections



I took a break from shoes to do a Daily Paintworks challenge project. The task was to paint from an upside down photo reference. I was quite surprised when I decided I was finished and turned the painting over. The only thing I tweeked was shadow color. This painting was just plain fun.

Sparkle Tennis Shoes



I didn't quite get the glitz on these. My husband thinks the idea is there. I'm not sure, but I am moving on to white sandals.

Pink Shoes



Four of the twelve shoe paintings done. I am thinking that I should put a photo of them being worn in the back of each painting.

These are special shoes. I hope I have caught them.

Red Shoes



My daughter gave me a bag of shoes and said that if the shoes became paintings maybe she could give the bag up. This is the second pair of twelve. The painting is bordering on being overworked and may end up in the scrap pile. Next pair I am going to take more time with lighting and set up. Fun project though!
