Ready for the Ball
January 10, 2013 in Watercolours
Went for a bit of variety yesterday and worked on something purely for the structure and form – and playing with a bit of light texture. (Although when I say variety, I clearly don’t mean colour as I’m still working in the red spectrum.)
The stiletto is an iconic shape. When taken to extreme, almost impossible to wear. There’s an architectural quality about a very high heeled shoe. Somehow it’s all about the angles. No attempt at realism in this painting – just playing with the shapes and exploring our perspective on the shoe.
