6" x 6"
The form, the light, the shadow, all make painting shoes sort of fun. These particular shoes belong to a friend of my daughter. I spotted them sitting alone one day and instantly saw a painting. The color is vivid and it was a challenge to get them blue enough. You can intensify the color of an object by contrasting the compliment color somewhere in the painting. I added a pale orange background to this piece to make the blue seem more blue. This painting is a commission piece and therefore already sold.
