Showing off the Shine!


I love shoes.  My favorite shoes are my Dr. Martens (bought by my hubby in San Francisco).  They have "me" written all over them.  I thought I would try my hand at drawing a pair and then coloring them up.  I also wanted to challenge myself with patent leather.  So here is my...attempt.  I have to admit I let out a squeal of delight when I was done!!

Someone sure has shiny shoes!! The only footwear in our house that gleams like that are Ben's RAF boots but then he has spent many many hours polishing them!
Fab colour work Jenn.
