The Cushy Shoes ... Holes and All

These are my favorite, most comfortable shoes. They have seen a lot of wear, and sadly we may have to part soon.

I've had to mask, using Pebeo this time.
I have done one graded wash of aureolin, and two of quin. burnt orange.

Another graded wash of quin. burnt orange and quin. violet.

Yet another - this time orange, violet and indanthrone, with some thicker mixture dropped in for the shadows.

I've done several washes of the orange, violet and indanthrone, and the last two were of violet and indanthrone only, to get really dark.

Now, I am starting on a road map of the shoes. With all the mesh of the shoe material, and the laces, it is quite complicated. I am also trying to come up with a drawing for a narrow street scene - my version of a landscape.

Thank you for dropping by, and your comments are always welcome!
