The Old Boot

Pencil sketch of an old leather boot.


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

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!

Do you abstract painters really start with a blank canvas, and build from there or do you plan your abstract?
I too think this is gorgeous, love all the details to be found here....I too start with a blank canvas most of the time...nothing is planned out...just start... view answer
