A little critique would be appreciated

I am happy with the boot on the far right. I don't have a lot of experience painting. I do more sketching so with the black boot I applied what I know from pencil work with light and shadow to the painting and am very happy with how it came out. The shoe however is supposed to be a cloth Victorian shoe and I am not happy with it. It is a little darker in real life but you can still get the flat blah idea of it. Any suggestions would be appreciated


  1. they are wonderful first off...i think the blue shoe needs more dark shading on the top edge and the front started the shading under and i think it needs to be brough down....beautiful work

  2. You had a question on my blog...The brush I am trying is a water brush, it has a reservor to hold water, and a brush on the tip, and you just squeeze gently and it wets the brush, I got mine at Michaels, JoAnns has them also. Just ask for a waterbrush.
