Hi all, sharing with you today a still life study of shoes and the process that went into creating it. I was inspired by the artists in the past such as Van Gogh who did the same thing and thought it would be a good exercise to further practice my painting from life skills. I went after an impressionistic style where I focused on loose brush strokes to capture the form rather than hyper-realism and there was some challenge initially in perspective and capturing the texture of the shoes with paint. In the end it was solved by painting exactly what I see and not what I thought it should look like.

The process...
