Joe's Shoes - by Darren Maurer

6" x 6"
The form, the light, the shadow, all make painting shoes sort of fun. These particular shoes belong to a friend of my daughter. I spotted them sitting alone one day and instantly saw a painting. The color is vivid and it was a challenge to get them blue enough. You can intensify the color of an object by contrasting the compliment color somewhere in the painting. I added a pale orange background to this piece to make the blue seem more blue. This painting is a commission piece and therefore already sold.

Wow! You have a talent, that's for sure. I love this. The vivid color of the shoes, the detail you've given them, and how the shoes are the ONLY thing in the image but makes it just perfect.

It looks great!
