Re: Scavenger Hunt #593: Jun 29 - Jul 8

item #1 - dress shoe

goodwill shoe

To me, the best thing about shoes (especially in summer) is not wearing them.

Still, these kind of looked like a Monet garden, so I got them many years ago just to look at. They're some kind of cloth reinforced with various kinds of plastic. Kind of strange.



Tools:

iPad Pro, Apple Pencil.

Procreate app (old version) for the sketch.

Art Studio Pro app for the downsize, border, and export.


Process:

Virtual acrylic on virtual cloth.

Freehand. No drafting tools or tracing, digital or otherwise.

No grid or smoothing or symmetry or cloning, digital or otherwise.

No digital filters or effects. No digital color intensification or exaggeration.

Reference located a few inches away.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #593: Jun 29 - Jul 8

Pine Cone, the shoe is so cool. Reminds me of a Cinderella slipper.

Scatty, fun to see the lace. Lovely. Neato bell. Guitar shapes are difficult, great job. Who plays?

Re: Scavenger Hunt #593: Jun 29 - Jul 8

Joan - First lobster than lobster pots. Did you catch it? Nice work on the pots and floats. Great take on looking through with a beautiful landscape.

Pine Cone - You mention Monet but I saw a ballet slipper and thought Degas. Either way it is a well done attention getter.

Scatty - love the soft hatching on the bell. lace and guitar are both well done as well.

Jo - love the play of light and shade…lost count trying to see how many shades of green you used.

1 two vegetables (onion and cucumber)
2 potato peeler
3 something white ( paper towel)

Used 5H and 2B leads in 9x12 in sketchbook. Close to an hour. Tried to show texture of towel without making it look gray.



Keep sketching
Joe

Edited to add: only noticed lack of symmetry on peeler after posting. It is symmetrical.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #593: Jun 29 - Jul 8

Jo — Thanks so much! Kudos for doing the difficult challenge with flair. Lovely work with an appealing rustic feel. Beautiful mimosa scene!

Ai — Beautifully done bridge scene!

Joan — Gorgeous landscape; exceptional painting 🎨

Scatty — Wonderful bell and graceful lacy pendant. Cool guitar too. Do you play?

Joe — Thanks so much... Its look reminds me of a ballet toe shoe as well. Nicely spotted. In real life, the shoe is weird. It kind of makes a cracking sound when I put it on. Like it'll rip apart if I take a step, like dry paper or bark or something. So despite the look, it feels very different from the feel of a ballet slipper when worn. But don't get me started on ballet toe shoes LOL.

Also, I was thinking Monet was a bad example. Doesn't his work often have quite a lot of blue? I'm not sure. But probably a bad analogy. I can't quite think who the shoes remind me of, maybe a little Turner, but that's off a bit too. I don't really know art very well. I wish I was more familiar with artists. Now I'm going to want to spend all day looking up artists and gardens and stuff!!!

Joe, continued — Outstanding veggie still life. Beautiful sheen, shading, and texture throughout, including the towel! 😄

Re: Scavenger Hunt #593: Jun 29 - Jul 8

Joe, I really like your veggies and peeler on the napkin. Wow! One of my potato peelers looks like that, don’t know how it got wonky. Thanks.

Pine Cone, thank you. I never studied art history either. I’m always in the dark. :-)

To those up north. Happy Canada Day! We used to celebrate in Bolivia with the Canadian priests/friends next door. Sorry I forgot!

Re: Scavenger Hunt #593: Jun 29 - Jul 8

Jo — I had to check online to see what Cinderella's slippers might have looked like, and I see what you mean! Thank you for sparkng that search Do you like Disney stuff? I've seen a few Pixars and they're pretty amazing!

As for learning about the artists, it's hard because everything is so haphazard online. Sort of a crap shoot when you don't know quite what you're looking for. Like trying to find a few needles in a billion haystacks. I still want to try and figure out where the comparison image in my mind came from, but I think it'll have to wait until I can get to the library.

Thanks for the thoughts about Canada. I feel lucky to live near such a wonderful country 😍

Pine Cone, the shoes may not be what you find online for Cinderella, but are. What I imagine, :-)

Back to trip preparations.

Jo — Safe travels and happy trails!

White Pen — I read about the heat wave in Europe. Sheesh, keep the ice cubes close by. Your pen may have melted, but your pencils might still be good to go... would love to see your sketches here again!!! Cheers and may your ice cube supply never run low

Re: Scavenger Hunt #593: Jun 29 - Jul 8

Jo and Pine thanks for kind words.


Pine Cone I can see how the coloring of slipper would make you think of an Impressionistic garden... and that is Monet! Degas is like my most fav artist and ballet anything makes me think of him regardless of style, coloring, etc etc. You did not say ballet slipper but at first look that was my thought.


Keep sketching ( and Pine Cone keep searching )
Joe

Joe — Wow, such a great link! Excellent choices - thanks so much ☀️ 🎨

And I will keep searching. I have two semi-vague images in my mind, one clearer than the other. They popped into my mind when I first saw the shoes. But I never did know where those two images came from. Both impressionistic, I think, but no artist name to go with them. I think one of them may have included hanging wisteria, but I'm not entirely sure what wisteria is. So I'm probably wrong, even about that. But definitely watery greens, some watery rose, some watery peach.

Thank you so much for encouragng me!

---------------------

I thought the actual shoe looks like a ballet toe shoe too, just as you did. In fact it has the weird construction at the toe that looks (from the outside) like the construction of a ballet toe shoe. If I failed to mention it in my original post it's because I have a deep and personal hatred for ballet toe shoes They're like strapping on medieval torture instruments

So now we're back in the territory we discussed a little a few months ago.

Degas.

I agree with you. One of my all-time favs.

But on the other hand, I fought against breakdowns in racehorses at tracks.

And if it wasn't that woman are volunteering to strap on ballet toe shoes of their own accord, I'd be active against toe shoes as well.

So every time I see a Degas, my mind runs on four parallel tracks:

..... the exceptional and transformative beauty of Degas' work

..... the horrors I've personally seen in the world of horse racing in America (frequent catastrophic breakdowns) (a broken leg is nearly always a death sentence for a horse) https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-rac...a-anita-halted

..... the personal experience of trying to dance on little blocks, carryng all my weight on one toe (I took ballet lessons for several years)

..... learning that female ballet dancers who continue down that path are maimed for life for their art...

So seeing a Degas automatically triggers all four parallel tracks. I wish I could be at peace with his art, but I see beyond the paint, into the possible lives and possible fates of his subjects.

Life is full of depth. A blessing and a curse I suppose.
