Week 5's lesson for the online watercolor class was shoes.
I began by drawing one of my husband's sneakers. An afternoon of perspective challenges took it's toll. I stopped before it was finished. It "might" have worked, but I ran off the page. And Tom's shoe is much longer in real life. This looks like a child's sneaker. Okay, make me say it, I didn't plan the drawing in advance.
No way in Hell was I going to try to draw this geometric nightmare again. Horrifying experience. Failure accepted. Lesson learned.
I studied the next shoe, measuring as I lightly sketched. It isn't perfect, but I'm kind of proud of this one. The best part being that I will never have to paint it again.
