graphite, oil sticks, strathmore heavyweight textured art paper, 9x12
Try a different medium than you normally use on a challenge you've already done: I decided to redo the very first challenge: #1 shoe/s. Most of my sketches are done with pen & watercolor or just watercolor so oil sticks are new to me. I"ve been sketching all kinds of shoes for about a week now- flats, heels, sandals, flipflops - so it seemed like the perfect time to give this a try before I get bored and move on to something new!
This textured art paper was wonderfully receptive to the medium and because it was already a light shade of pink /rose, one of the colors was already done for me :) Great fun with this one!!
