I am currently taking an online class from Cat Bennett called, Making Art A Practice: In and Out of the Sketchbook. (Click on the highlight to see a video preview of her class). This is the second online class I’ve taken from Cat and I really enjoy her teaching style. She is a gentle soul and I always learn so much from her.
Cat recently shared Andy Warhol’s shoe art so I had to give it a try with my own imaginary shoe:
I drew a shape of a shoe on computer paper and then cut out the interior shape. Next, I applied rubber cement around the stencil edges and temporarily glued it to hot press watercolor paper. I then applied watercolor to the paper and removed the stencil before it was completely dry.
After the paint was totally dry, I added highlights to the shoe. I cut a flower from a previous gelli-print and attached it to the shoe with a glue stick. I found the quote on the internet.
I can’t wear shoes like this anymore… but it doesn’t mean I can’t draw them! 🙂
Happy Creating! 🙂
