My goals and intentions for this artwork was creating a piece and exaggerate the colors. I accomplished this by looking at the tints of color found in the reflextions and lightening that color up. My painting is about using swiping motions to create a image of a shoe. The most difficult challenge i had to face was having to wait long periods of time for the paint to dry. I overcame this challenge by waiting until the next day do do any detail. My painting really e=works in the stitching. I learned how to make a oil painting with only using a paint knife. A mentor i can name was Mr. Gadreau. Georgia inspired me to use more color. If i had a do-over i wouldn't paint a shoe. I feel best about my work in the pool balls.
