View Full Version : S&B delta, shoes

I can't remember who it was but someone online had started a picture of their child's shoes, from the first pair.

I thought it was a brilliant idea, he was keeping a sketchbook purely for the project of sketching each pair of shoes as the child grew.

So .... My S&B delta 5.5 8.5 ins book is going to be kept for this slow burn project.

My one year old grandsons first trainers open the book. He's got a little pair of Converse that I will sketch when I can.

Derwent studio coloured pencil and ballpoint pen.

Thanks Debby :)

I may include toys or clothes iN the book .... Not sure yet,if I do they will all be things linked with him.

Update, background colour and a little warm amber added where the light touched so it didn't look so cold and had more of a composition.

Another pair of my grandson's shoes - tiny Converse trainers :)

Watercolour, coloured pencil, pencil and ballpoint pen in the S&B Delta A5 book. I'm going to fill it over time with sketches of his shoes and maybe toys.
