# 195: Black Shoes

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I wanted to work mostly with value and so picked my black shoes to paint on a neutral background. I am not sure if the painting is balanced. The left shoe looks like it is ready to get going.


  1. Those blue highlights dancing on the shoes are just what it needs to wake up the tonality. I like the left shoe, she seems obstinate. The strap and button look like a face... But to me, it's the right shoe that looks like it's ready to get going.
    maybe the left shoe knows not what the right shoe is up to... ?


  2. Great Shoes! They are dancing on the cloth.
