Red Patent Louboutin

Hey there! I just got finished with a Skillshare class! It was with Katie Rodgers, an artist you know I love, and it is so fun to see her techniques and inspirations. This piece was inspired by her shoe illustration class. You should check Skillshare out. It’s neat.

If you’re like me, you go through many new techniques and supplies and get tired of them quite easily. A few weeks ago, I was raving about the Aquash water brushes, (and they are still so handy) but I did acquire a really great (renewed) appreciation for simple brushes with this painting. The paint seems to stick better to non-synthetic bristles (I was using camel hair). You can also create lovely washes with bigger round brushes. 

Sometimes I find myself using the same brush over and over but it is so much easier to switch brushes if you’re painting a wash vs. painting tiny details. Just a thought of the day 🙂

Also, I do have this print available on my new Etsy shop! Buy it here! It’s printed on card stock paper, 8.5 x 11 inches, and signed by me 🙂
