WALK A MILE REVISTED
I recently purchased two small canvases and decided to take the moccasins out of their protective glass containers and get to work in acrylic. With the start of school, I have loads of demo pieces going at school with my students but wanted to have a gallery quality piece started on my easel at home too.
So here's my beginning. I started by under painting the canvas then applied a great carmine color which I roughed up and scrubbed out so the under painting shown through. I love creating portals in my work so this wrap around canvas was perfect for a vintage looking frame.
I also decided to compose the shoes so they would look like they were hanging on the canvas from a straight forward viewpoint.
So the fun is about to begin. I am anxious to challenge myself to capture the worn hide and tiny beads on these old shoes.
