Maggie and I are making the most of these hot sunny days hanging on the lanai while I work on my latest Shoe Portrait commission– a graduation present for a son who is a world traveler and has the kicks to prove it.
Sketch for painting
Graphite on paper
5″ x 5″
The sneakers are a work of art themselves and the painting is looking really good.
Can’t show you yet- the client gets to see it first!

I work from the shoes directly- not photos.
Took these outside to take advantage of the beautiful weather and the clear bright light.

Turned the top of this side table into my palette- works perfectly!
