Sketch practice #92

Daily Art 01-03-18 still life sketch in graphite number 92 - leather bootie shoe

Yesterday’s shoe sketch was fun, so I picked another from the closet for today’s sketch. This is a black leather ankle bootie I’ve had for quite a few years and I still love them. For a shoe with a heel, they’re surprisingly comfortable! That’s key for me.

I wanted to see if I could do this sketch more quickly, which worked out pretty well. But the shading went messy on the back of the shoe which I don’t like. I also didn’t do a great job of making long, soft lines (per my Sadie Valerie online atelier training) so I’m still working on that…And since it’s black leather, I had a much more difficult time discerning where the shadow shapes were.
