So I had decided to participate in this week's DailyPaintworks "Shoe" challenge and I knew just the pair I wanted to paint. My Oldest Daughter, aka MOD, had "scored" this pair in the most hideous green I have ever seen - it is not a green found in nature - and I just really wanted to paint them from the moment I saw them laying by the couch, by the computer, in the hallway, outside the front door.... she wears them a lot and leaves them laying around everywhere. So I grabbed them, did a nice set-up, painted a grisaille underpainting and was letting that dry when she asked, "Have you seen my green shoes?"
Off they went.
So I had to work from the grisaille and my memory. So I think it turned out just ok from that.
