Dirty shoesPosted: November 15, 2013
Why are shoes so interesting to draw? For me they have almost as much character as the people who wear them and they often have a story to tell about where they’ve been, which in this case is within close proximity to a lawn mower. When I don’t have a chance to get outside to draw they are usually the most interesting objects in my house. I used three different pencils for this dirty shoe drawing: a carbon pencil for the deep blacks, a 9B Cretacolor for the rough textured bits and a mechanical pencil for the fine lines. The mix of all three seemed to suit the subject.
