These boots were a challenge to paint especially the laces! But I enjoyed all the different elements.
I set up a casual composition as though they'd been taken off and left. The material is suede so there wasn't a shine or highlights. I worked on the different tones and undulations of the material.
I could have kept tweaking and fussing but didn't want to overwork it and you got to know when to stop! I am pleased with the outcome.
Goodness me, I'm speechless. This is your top painting. Very tricky subject captured to perfection, well done Clare.ReplyDelete
I love the casualness of the composition; the colour tones of both laces and boots are excellent and the background is without distraction but has enoughReplyDelete
'colour' tone in it to distinguish it from the soles.
