Pictured above is a random piece of art that I was inspired to create recently. I was thinking about the “Walk the Talk” event by Young, Hip, Chic, and the event just had me thinking of shoes! I wanted to do something different with my art…acrylic paint and colored pencils are fine, but I am ready to begin exploring beyond that again. What is shown above is what I came up with…a mixed media shoe portrait!
I began by sketching out the shoe, then I used seed beads to create the shine and texture of the main shoe, the focal point of the portrait. Next, I found denim that I wanted to use to create the jean look on the leg above the shoe and patterned it out to fit in the picture. I filled in the other shoe and leg with colored pencils and used colored pencil shavings to create a “dusty” look around the portrait. I wanted to try something different and I did…I like it…and I cannot wait to explore more forms of art using different art mediums.
