My latest colored pencil drawing is of Lucky dog and his little girl. The photographs below illustrate the progress on this illustration from start to finish.
People often lament they can only hang art on the walls of their home once they can afford to buy a few pieces that they like, but I have never felt limited in this manner. I love to draw and paint, so I create images for the walls of my home which I hang up myself. Creating your own art work is a budget friendly and fun way to add a bit of color to an otherwise boring space. However, I tend to love color, so people who prefer more monochromatic tones would probably prefer to create illustrations in those shades.
Below are several pictures I took of the shoes after I had finished adding all the palm trees and blue sky.
After the shoes sat for a few hours, and I relaced the pair and wore these out and about. I think the shoes actually look much better in the light of day then these did the night before. Creating designs on canvas shoes with markers is a lot easier, and less messy than fabric paint. However, fabric paint would also be a fun medium to use on canvas shoes since it would create textures that fabric markers cannot. Make sure to follow all the directions on the box of your fabric markers before adding designs to a pair of shoes.
