Shoes still life

Postby Nikodal В» 10.10.2019

.

For this piece, I wanted to make an expressive drawing of an object that has emotional significance for me. Now that she is a teenager, these little items of footwear are laden with memories. Their sense of intimacy and identity, with a connection to the wearer and their personal history, makes them fascinating subject matter.

The surface of this pair is interestingly scuffed and worn; drawing them was less about the end result than about exploring ways of capturing this variety of textures, creases and signs of wear with the use of different media and markmaking. I placed the shoes on a white surface for maximum contrast in tone. They were next to the natural light coming from a window, and I stood up in order to see the attractive shapes they made from above.

Standing allowed me to draw with energy and a loose, relaxed arm. I tried to keep a sense of vitality in the drawing by keeping my hand in constant movement over the whole drawing. The intention was to complete the piece in a single session.

I roughly mapped out the position of each shoe with a graphite stick, and then with a square-edged brush I used a very thin wash of drawing ink to indicate shadows and some of the tones. I made the pair roughly life size and intended to keep them on a square format. The ink dried very quickly and I then used a thin piece of charcoal to draw in some firm, energetic lines, constantly looking up and back down to the drawing, adjusting to achieve accuracy and a good sense of the overall shape of the shoes on the table top.

I used my finger to smudge some of the charcoal, trying to establish the sense of them as dark objects on a light surface and get the very deepest tones in place. I also used the sharp edge of my rubber to suggest the lightest areas with brisk, loose and linear marks. I used a very soft, almost black, graphite pencil to indicate a light texture behind the shoes and loosely drew in a square boundary for the drawing. I also used the finer line of the pencil over the charcoal to define the subtle variations in tone over the shoes and the distinct shadows.

Here I tried to keep momentum in the drawing and build up the marks, creating a rhythm over the whole surface. I was using both the rubber and the thin edge of the pencil rubber to remove the pencil in the background.

I wanted to get a real sense of solidity in the shoes and further strengthened the shadows with charcoal and graphite pencil and added the detail of the heart motif at the front. Using the rubber to lift and move around the charcoal, I found the lighter areas of tone on the left-hand shoe and was able to refine the shape. I added finer marks with the HB automatic pencil and used slightly smaller marks with graphite, charcoal and the rubber to further refine the tones. I concentrated on the forms of the straps and buckles to improve the accuracy.

Finally, I used the chalk pastel to clarify the shape of the shadows in the background and to add the last highlights to the shoes. I stopped when I felt that I had a good balance between accurately capturing the shape and character of the shoes and the energetic, loose markmaking I was aiming for. Subscribe today.
