This week’ sketchbook assignment is old shoes: Find an old pair of shoes, and place them near a window or some other strong light source. Do a value study of those shoes. A couple of things to remember:
- Chose shoes that are old – new shoes are harder! Do not try and draw shiny shoes, either, as you will be dealing with reflections and that makes it very hard.
- Do not draw pure black shoes. This will also make things much harder.
- Make sure you have good shadows and highlights.
- TWO shoes (Even though one of the examples only has one)
- Fill the page!
