Laces - A Work in Progress

An exercise we did last month in Abstract painting with Lorraine Staples was to use a shoe with laces and do four line drawings of a small part of the shoe to create an interesting outline.

Each one was different and although some of the line drawings did look as though they were a part of a shoe, others did not.

As each drawing was completed it was turned in every direction to decide which way looked the best.

By the time the last drawing was completed it was time to make a choice as to which one would be used to create an abstract painting.

For me that was a very difficult decision as I liked both the second and third sketch equally well.

After a lot of thought, I decided that I was going to use both of them and simply joined the two of them together with a couple of lines.

I will post this piece at a later date once I have transferred the sketch to a canvas.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
