Question

Good art therapy, have you ever drawn or sketched an old boot or shoe every now and then?

Good question, I think it was because I wanted to catch one upright boot rather than a pair. It was a college exercise many years ago and was probably the only time I ever did one shoe or boot on it's own rather than in a pair. Cheers, Kevin

As someone who's recently started pencilling, this is a real inspiration! Maybe I'll go back and revisit my boots painting as a pencil drawing. Well done Kevin! :)

The older the better! I might well have another go in the next 6 months if I can find a suitable boot! Glad to have been an inspiration for you. Cheers, Kevin

This is soooo good!! I also sketched a pair of leather boots, some time ago, and would love it to hear your opinion. You have far more experience than I have, so I would like to hear what you think. Honest opinion. I love your boot, you really see the wear and tear. Well done!

Excellent sketch, from my military experience looks like a jump boot, as in paratrooper style. But quite a few wore them with bloused fatigues or class A's. KUDOS & ******'s

Many thanks Michael, I was never in the military but did enjoy the Band of Brothers series & watched it last year for a second time. The boots are great to draw but probably were not always so comfortable to march or run in! Cheers, Kevin

Kevin, it's amazing but those boots were very comfortable. but had three pair to switch. Your sketch is amazing.

Great art has sometimes no need for color, complexity or an intellectual quest. This is a masterpiece and makes me love art and being part of this community. Thanks for the inspiration. Rick

This old boot drawing is so realistic and the leather, tongue, and eyelets are fantastic! I like this pencil drawing so much it has inspired me to draw a still-life.

Wonderful subject and drawing, excellent work!
