This painting is about the colors reflected in black. I painted black shoes and emphasized the light and colors I could see in them. I used thick strokes of paint because I liked the texture on the canvas. I created my own black with dark purples mixed with reds and blues and only used true black paint from the tube on the laces. I think my painting really work around the edges of the shoes where you can see the most colors. If I could redo my painting I would have corrected one of the reflections in the middle of my right shoe and added the detailed designs that the shoes I was painting had.
