I Could Paint Red Shoes for a Year!

These photos are from day three of the workshop. The top photo is just the luscious red shoes in cadmium red with a little thalo green mixed in, the second photo I've added my grays and green shadows. I'm not quite sure about the green shadows so I'm going to go back to the studio and work with the colors. In the bottom photo I'm mixing up my color combinations, remember in the workshop we are only allowed to use two complementary colors and white. Somehow it made it easier for me to paint with a limited palette, not being a painter I get confused when I have to mix up too many color combinations. I love the lines, shapes and colors of my red shoes and told Mimo I could paint them for a whole year!

The composition, lines, and angles are so interesting, Kendra. I am intrigued by the use of two complementary colors and white -- hmmmm.....makes me want to pull out my very few tubes of oil paint and try again. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Thanks Lynda! I may try some more oil painting myself!
