Day #061 – Practicing Drawing Shoes

I enjoyed the process yesterday of drawing lots of noses from different angles so I thought I’d repeat the exercise with a still-life, my shoe. I did these while sitting in front of the TV with my girlfriend in the evening. It’s a single shoe places in different positions. Sometimes I started it i the wrong place so couldn’t fit the whole shoe in without it overlapping a previous drawing. I enjoy the feeling of loosening up when I don’t take too long over each one. I enjoy the feeling of coming to understand the item better as a three dimensional object with subtle contours and deviations in volume which you don’t really notice if you only draw from one fixed vantage point. All have their problems but I’ll say my favorite is, perhaps, the bottom left.
