My beloved Nike Shoes. They witnessed many beach weddings and incurred a lot of mileage. They were incredibly comfortable (light, airy and barely noticeable) and I wore them to almost every wedding I was shooting during that era until they could no longer be worn.
This shoe illustration was created with Daler Rowney’s FW Acrylic Inks. I took the photograph (shown below) of my shoe several years before I even contemplated creating a painting (10 years to be exact). In terms of simplicity, it was a great image to work from to get back into drawing and painting. In case you are wondering what the background of the image is, I have a set of stairs in my home that are fuchsia pink. Pink is a joyous colour!
Oh how I miss these shoes. If I remember correctly, I ordered them out of the Sears catalogue.
