Contour Shoe Drawing
In order to prepare for this composition, we had to do various contour drawings and blind drawings in our sketchbook. I also had to practice drawing overlapping objects.Overlapping is when one object looks like its in front of the other. For my large composition, I used my shoes and put one in front of the other so they overlapped. To make one shoe look larger, I drew it darker and closer to the viewer. To make the shoe in the background look farther away, I made it lighter and drew it farther away. This gives the idea of overlapping. In order to give it dimension, I added shadows and some value to each shoe.
