I'm going to try to catch up on the challenges, and do the current one and at lease one other every week. I might not do them in order, but I really wanted to do the shoe challenge. This is my new pink summer shoes (or Rose Madder Hue shoes if you're a purist). I liked the colors of the shoe and Rose Madder is not a color I use very often. The beds are a soft grey, and there are little brass colored metal accents, and small cutouts. It was a very fun shoe to sketch.
I have actually been doing the challenges since last summer, but they were mostly quick sketches in my journal using crayons or markers. Maybe I could post them side by side and see the progression, see the difference between reallly trying and just tossing something off.
