Thanks Lynne, great memories in those old boots, have a pair of walking boots now fit for mountain passes. Off to Nepal soon to do some trekking so they will come in useful. Will try and sketch them during the trip.

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.

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!
