A Blue Shoe

I’m having so much fun painting shoes!  They are such a kick!  Lol!  🙂

This drawing was made by looking at my hubby’s old brown shoe to create my stencil.  Brown seemed too drab so I decided to paint it blue!  And I love Forrest Gump so the quote just seemed like a good match:


I added the stitching with color pencil and a few lines to make the shoe look worn.

I thought you might also enjoy seeing these sketches in my art journal:


I really like sketching in 2 colors as it adds more dimension.

Happy Drawing!  🙂

  4. Love the quote! Can my blue smurf foot borrow that blue shoe? I was drawing shoes yesterday, but mine didn’t turn out too good. I’ve sometimes gone over a graphite sketch with ink, but I’ve never really tried sketching with colors — unless I’m doing a colored pencil drawing. Well, I did sketch a ladybug recently and colored it in with black and red colored pencils…and I’m just babbling this morning, aren’t I? Love the blue shoe. Is it suede? Now, I’ll be hearing Elvis singing in my brain all day!

  5. These are great Jill! There’s so much joy in your work, always! I think I like the sketches in your journal as much as the shoe! Love the two colors (and that’s a great idea), and composition and color range throughout! Bravo 👏👏😎🎨🌻😃

  6. Loving the shoe and the quote makes the piece fabulous! I’m far from an artist, but when I was doing pencil and charcoal drawing in college, my favorite subjects were shoes. Shoes and woodgrain were the only things I could manage to get a flow from my eyes to my fingers, then through the pencil to the paper.

  11. This reminded me of a friend’s dancing shoes – lovely 🙂 !!! I love how you’re so engaged with the drawing… You’d inspired me so much and all my time has gone through this whirlwind section of my life… I hope I can get back into it soon again! Unpacked my art books and photographed them though 😀 Keep it up Jill ❤
