50 Paintings in 50 days
Candy apple red shoe #6. I really enjoyed painting this super shiny red shoe, took me a couple of hours. I had trouble getting the reflections right and the value on top of the shoe gave me trouble because I had to mix a very dark rich red to give it dimensionality.
What can I say? I have lived on a whim all my life. When I was six years old my mother put me on a float in a parade dressed as a Gypsy. It was to set the stage for my transient ways, my love for new and interesting experiences and my search to avoid the boredom of everyday life. In a nutshell I seek the unusual, but my art subject is solid and conventional, in that respect I enjoy common subjects and the beauty they hold. I will try to post as many of the paintings that I have completed and my progress in this challenging hobby. I'm inspired each day I wake up, enjoy!
