Favorite Shoes

Do you have a favorite pair of shoes?

I had fun creating these shoes, inspired by Andy Warhol’s shoe art; you can see other shoe art I did here: The Power Of A Shoe…

I started by drawing shoes from the internet, making a simple stencil.  Next, I used the shoe stencil as my pattern on my hand-painted papers.

I experimented with hand lettering from an online class I’m taking from Andrea Joseph at Sketchbook Skool.

Lastly, I used the one of the shoe stencils to create this doodle and quote from Marilyn Monroe:

I hope you have happy feet today…

The Power Of A Shoe…

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:image

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!  🙂
